Stabbed teen: 'I was scared'


June 04, 2009 03:25pm


A STABBING that put two teenage boys in hospital yesterday is believed to be payback for a petty incident earlier in the day.

The fight between Mohammod Rizk, 13, and Jamil Asswad, 15, both of Lebanese background, and a larger group described as being of Asian background broke out about 3.30pm as the pair stepped off the school bus in Gundaroo St, Villawood.

The Daily Telegraph understands the attack followed an earlier altercation when one of the teens bumped into another student while waiting for the bus to school.

Mohammod's father Hassaan Rizk, 61, said last night he feared for his family's safety after the attack.

The father of seven said he moved to Australia from Lebanon 40 years ago and had never experienced any violence here.

"I feel like we're under attack. In Australia nothing like this should happen. It's not right - everybody should be happy here," he said.

Mohammod, a student at Bass High School, was last night at Liverpool Hospital with stab wounds to the left arm and right leg. Jamil, a Year 10 student at the same school, suffered cuts to his right arm, leg and neck in the attack.

His sister Fatima Zaki, 25, said the stabbing followed an altercation with an Asian youth who bumped shoulders with Jamil. The Asian youth then punched Jamil in the face and told him he would be back to get him later in the day.

She said four Asian youths were waiting in a red Honda Civic when Jamil and Mohammod got off the school bus about 3.30pm. She said the youths were armed with two large knives and a pole.

"Jamil was running for home. He was screaming for help," she said.

"I ran down and yelled at them to get away. They stabbed him and then went away in the car.

"I was shocked. It was terrifying."

Schoolmate Shannen Harris, 15, who also saw the attack, said: "They got off the bus and a boy yelled out from the back seat, 'Oh my God, someone's chasing them'."

"A guy was chasing them with a baseball bat or metal pole," Shannen said.
