A 30-year-old Singaporean man is wanted by Australian police after he allegedly attempted to murder a Singaporean woman in Brisbane late Monday night (May 8).
Queensland Police said the man, whose name was not released, used a hammer to hit the 20-year-old woman in her head at a residence in Norman Park. He also stabbed her multiple times with a knife.
The woman suffered a fractured skull and was taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital, reported Australian media. Queensland Police say she is not believed to have suffered life threatening injuries and she is reportedly in a stable condition right now.
Queensland Police inspector Steve Flori told ABC News that the 30-year-old man, who is of slim build, had only arrived in Australia over the weekend.
The 30-year-old man also left his passport and wallet behind when he fled on foot. Although police dogs were unable to track him, CCTV footage captured his face.
