The assailant, who was wounded by a solitary law enforcement officer, was counted among the deceased, while an infant was among the individuals who were stabbed.

During a news conference, New South Wales Police Commissioner Anthony Cooke reported that the assailant entered the Westfield Bondi Junction mall at approximately 3:20 p.m. local time (1:20 a.m. ET) and proceeded to damage approximately nine individuals by stabbing them with a weapon he was carrying.

The authorities presume that the perpetrator was a solitary 40-year-old male, although they were unable to furnish any other specifics on his identity.

Australia, a nation where incidents resulting in several casualties are seldom, has been profoundly startled by the attack.

In 2019, a mass shooting occurred in the northern city of Darwin, resulting in the death of four individuals and the injury of one.
