American Madness Now Spreads to Australia : Sydney stabber identified as 40-year-old man

The American madness Now seems to have spread and reached Australia. A man believed to be responsible for a stabbing attack in Sydney that left six people dead has been identified as a 40-year-old originally from the northeast state of Queensland, Australian police said Sunday.

There is no evidence to indicate the assailant, Joel Cauchi, had a particular motivation or ideology that spurred the incident on Saturday, according to the police. Cauchi was shot dead by a police officer inside the shopping mall where the attack took place.

Local police said the man had mental health issues.

Five women and one man were killed in the knife attack at the Westfield Shopping Centre in Bondi Junction while many people, including a 9-month-old infant, were injured, with more than 10 hospitalized.
