Footpath left blood-stained after man injured metres from Port Kennedy Primary School


Families attending a primary school in Perth’s south were faced with a confronting sight of blood-stained bitumen after a man was seriously injured overnight. 

It’s understood an incident unfolded near the children’s crosswalk of Port Kennedy Primary School on the corner of Grand Ocean Boulevard and Strasurg Ramble just before 9pm.

A pool of blood followed by a several metre trail of bloodied footprints showed the wounded man headed east through a round-a-bout before coming to a stop where it’s understood he got into a car. 

A St John Ambulance spokesperson said a man, in his 20s, was rushed to Royal Perth Hospital with multiple injuries after attending the Rockingham Hospital Emergency Department. 

The spokesperson confirmed that the man had injuries resembling a possible stab wound. 

The WA Police Media Unit wouldn’t provide much detail on the incident but did confirm a person had sustained a leg injury. 

A police spokesperson said she had no knowledge of a stabbing as the man didn’t want to speak with officers and that no criminal report had been made at this time. 

As for the blood-stained footpath, a City of Rockingham spokesperson told Skeer News a request was put through to the relevant department to clean the area.
