A MAN has died and another suffered severe injuries in two separate stabbing incidents in Fremantle.
At 11.45pm on Thursday a 17-year-old was involved in an dispute while leaning on a wall outside Ali Baba and 40 Dishes kebab shop in the heart of the Cappuccino Strip.
“The victim was then physically assaulted before receiving stab wounds,” a police spokesperson said. He then ran from the area and collapsed outside a nearby store.
“The boy was conveyed to Royal Perth Hospital and is currently in a stable condition after surgery.”
An Ali Baba staffer said the victim had not been a customer, but declined to comment further.
A month ago Rhett Pace, who owns the nearby Zapfhall restaurant on the Cappuccino Strip posted a video on Facebook showing a woman being kicked in the head during a drunken brawl below his business.
In an emotional post he said anti-social behaviour on the strip had reached tipping point despite a Fremantle council zero-tolerance policy.
Thursday’s incident came in the wake of an 18 year old man dying in hospital last weekend after allegedly being stabbed in the chest by his female relative Tanya Ugle as they got off a Fremantle bus last Wednesday.
A police spokesperson said the pair boarded a bus at Fremantle train station at around 2.15pm but the driver stopped the bus shortly after leaving the station and asked the 35-year-old woman to leave.
“It will be alleged once out of the bus the woman produced a knife and assaulted the 18-year-old man,” the police spokesman said.
Ms Ugle has been charged with murder.
