On Friday night, Pakistani-American student Mehreen Ahmad was found unconscious, lying in a pool of her own blood in the stairway of an apartment building in Perth, Yahoo7 News reported.
Mehreen, who had moved to Australia two years ago to study primary school teaching, was allegedly bashed in the head by a guy she had been introduced to the same night, Eduardo Santos Abrahao Filho. Returning to her apartment after a night out with friends, Mehreen’s friends claimed the victim did not return after leaving to get cigarettes. Details of the incident still remain unclear as investigations continue.
The 30-year-old was taken to Royal Perth Hospital where she remains in critical condition.
According to Perth Now, the suspect, who was arrested by the police a day later, has been remanded in custody until June 7 after appearing in Perth Magistrates Court on charges of “grievous bodily harm”.
