A 22-year-old man allegedly inspired by ISIS has been charged with terrorism and attempted murder, after allegedly stabbing a man in a Western Sydney park.
Grandfather Wayne Greenhalgh, 59, was on his daily walk in a reserve in Minto on Saturday afternoon when he was allegedly stabbed by Ihsas Khan, who was shouting 'Allahu Akbar, this is a good day to die'.
After receiving multiple stab wounds to his hands and body Mr Greenhalgh escaped to a nearby property where he was taken into an adjoining hairdressing salon by the owner.
A local resident said she watched in horror as property owner Duyen Phan barricaded the entrance as Mr Khan, 22, allegedly attempted to smash his way inside before local heroes intervened.
Sivei Ah Chong, 43, confronted Mr Khan and repeatedly bashed him over the head with a plank of wood, stopping him from getting to Mr Greenhalgh, according to The Daily Telegraph.
When the police arrived Mr Khan attempted to allegedly stab an officer through a car window before he was subdued and taken into custody.
Paramedics treated Mr Greenhalgh at the scene before airlifting him to Liverpool Hospital in a serious condition.
About 5.30pm on Sunday, a spokesman for the hospital told Daily Mail Australia Mr Greenhalgh's condition was stable.
He underwent six hours of surgery for his injuries, which included a punctured lung and deep laceration, but lost several fingers, according to reports.
A witness told Seven News that Mr Khan was 'running around shouting 'Allahu Akbar, this is a good day to die' as he looked to break into the salon after the attack.
The reports of him shouting Islamic phrases and words have added to the belief the incident was 'inspired by ISIS', with Deputy Commissioner Catherine Burn saying the attack was deliberate.
'We will be alleging before court that this was an act that was inspired by ISIS, it was a deliberate act yesterday, it resulted in a person receiving extremely serious injuries.
'We will allege that he set out to do something yesterday, how long he had been planning this, we don't know.
'This is the new face of terrorism, this is the new face of what we deal with.'
