Alice Springs rocked by AXE attack as more violence overnight in lawless town
A new wave of violence has struck lawless Alice Springs as a teenager is set upon by axe-wielding youths in a horrific broad daylight attack.
Alice Springs Hospital worker Namfon Fon, who moved to the town from Thailand to be with her partner, posted a warning on Facebook following the assault of her son near Sammy’s Pizza on Monday afternoon.
Ms Fon’s 16-year-old son was walking in the Alice suburb of Braitling when three young persons attacked him.
‘They have an axe and hit him multiple times in his face, stomach, leg and other parts of his body,’ she said.
Disturbing video of the assault obtained by Daily Mail Australia shows three young males – one wielding an axe or hatchet – laying into the teenager, hitting and kicking him as he cowers in a park.
Video of the attack, which is believed to have taken place in Rhonda Diano Oval, shows two males in black T-shirts and an axe-wielder grunting as they beat the 16-year-old.
Then a man out of view yells at them to stop, saying ‘eh, eh, eh! What the f*** do you think you’re doing?
‘F*** off. Do you think you’re tough ganging up on him? Watch out for yourself. All of you. I know your names.
