‘He went for my brother’s throat but he guarded his throat with his arm so he sliced both of his arms instead,’ she told 9 News.
Photographs show a blood-soaked towel on the floor and blood spatters smeared over the toilet.
‘I screamed and locked my door in fear … it was a really scary experience,’ the girl said.
‘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.’
