“Both my parents screamed and I’ve never heard those types of screams before,” the victim’s sister told 9News.

“The guy with the machete stormed into the house and went straight for my brother.

“He went for my brother’s throat but he guarded his throat with his arm so he slices both of his arms instead…I screamed and locked my door in fear … it was a really scary experience.

“For my family to experience this, it’s really traumatising especially for my mum She saw everything, she saw the pool of blood my brother was sat in.”

The victim’s sister has recalled hearing her parent’s screaming and seeing a “pool of blood”. (9News)
