(Well, I guess that was HIS jihad!) A 69-year-old Muslim grandfather has been decapitated after he tried to protect his wife during a domestic dispute at his Southwest Sydney home. Toufic Zahab’s 42-year-old son has been charged with murder and refused bail.
NEWS 24 (h/t Henry P) A man was arrested in Australia on Thursday after allegedly decapitating his father after he stepped in to protect his wife during a family quarrel, reports and police said. Toufic Zahab, aged 69, died after he was reportedly attacked with a brick and a knife inside his home in a western Sydney suburb.
Police confirmed the man’s head was cut off and his wife was being treated for shock after the attack allegedly carried out by their son Khoder, aged 42. “A man has been arrested after a body was found in a home in Bankstown this morning,” police said. Besides the murder charge, Khoder was also charged with assaulting police and common assault after he struggled with the officers. He was denied bail by the Burwood Local Court and ordered to show up on April 10.
“The scene itself is quite disturbing. Relatives gathered outside the house told media that the son pushed his mother down the stairs and then attacked his father when he tried to intervene. “He was a wonderful man, a beautiful man, well known in the community. This is the most unexpected thing that could occur. (NO, it isn’t, it’s a Muslim thing)
Acting Superintendent Glen Fitzgerald said, “It’s believed two young children were inside the house at the time of the attack, and may have witnessed the incident.”
