A man in Australia was stabbed in the neck by his house guest, an ISIS-inspired woman wearing a burqa who screamed “Allahu Akbar” as she perpetrated the attack.
Roger Singaravelu, 56, was allegedly attacked by Bangladeshi student Momena Shoma as he was sleeping, and his five-year-old daughter witnessed the stabbing.
Singaravelu reported feeling a “sharp pain” in his neck and woke to see Shoma leaning over him, clutching a kitchen knife and screaming “Allahu Akbar,” the Daily Mail reported.
“I reactively grabbed on to the knife and fought (her) off, my daughter was screaming nearby, and I told her to run and hide,” Singaravelu said of the alleged attack, which occurred in February at his home in Melbourne. “There was blood everywhere. I ran outside with my daughter and got the attention of neighbors, who assisted me.”
Shoma was charged with one count of engaging in a terrorist attack after allegedly being inspired by ISIS.
Shoma arrived in Melbourne on February 1 on a student visa and was renting a room in Singaravelu’s home while studying at La Trobe University.
Australian Homestay Network arranged the placement of Shoma. The organization is cooperating with police. Singaravelu might consider filing a lawsuit against the company.
Singaravelu is only now speaking publicly about the incident, and says that he remains “traumatized” by the experience.
