TERRIFYING video has emerged of the moment a young woman strolls into a suburban 7-Eleven with an axe and then hacks into two customers waiting to be served.
CCTV footage shows the bloody rampage second by second as it takes place inside the 7-Eleven at Enmore, in Sydney’s inner west, in the early hours of Saturday morning.
As police and paramedics are called to the bloody scene at the 7-Eleven, bystander Nathan Wood says he chases the axe-wielding woman down the street until she allegedly swings the axe again at the person behind Mr Wood.
Police converge on Stanmore Road and a short time later a police dog allegedly finds Ms Amati lying in the front yard of a property along the road.
Police claim to find an axe nearby. Police arrest and handcuff her and she is taken to St Vincent’s Hospital for assessment, and later transferred to a cell.
The victims are both taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital to be treated.
Charged with intentionally causing grievous bodily harm, Ms Amati has been remanded in custody to face court again on Thursday.
Ms Amati asked the court that she be supplied with the type of medication commonly taken by person changing gender from male to female.
She asked that she be supplied with the oestrogen booster Progynova, and Spractin, a testosterone suppressor.
