West Australian police are searching a person who had a swastika painted on his head when he allegedly attacked a girl with a makeshift flamethrower.
Police say the 40-year-old girl and her teenage daughter had been approached by the person within the southeast Perth suburb of Gosnells on Saturday evening.
They are saying he yelled racial obscenities on the girl earlier than making an attempt to burn her with a makeshift flamethrower made utilizing a can of deodorant and a lighter. The lady sustained minor accidents.
WA Police wish to communicate with the person who’s described as fair-skinned, about 40 years previous and 175cm tall. He had a white swastika painted on his brow on the time of the assault.
“We’re treating this cowardly and random assault on a girl and her baby, doing nothing greater than strolling to the retailers within the early night, very critically,” Det Sen Sgt Sean Bell mentioned on Tuesday.
“This sort of behaviour just isn’t acceptable and isn’t tolerated inside our group. We now have allotted all of our accessible sources to find this man. Somebody locally is aware of who this individual is and we’re asking that member of the group to contact us and help in figuring out this individual.”
Anybody with data is requested to contact Crime Stoppers.
