Fishy attack

A SAWN-OFF swordfish bill is the alleged weapon used by a woman to attack a Floreat woman (49) in Brighton Street, West Leederville about 8.30am last Monday.

Senior Sergeant Kate Vivian said the victim was preparing her property for a home open when her attacker approached from the street �carrying a toothed bill from a swordfish.�

No reason was given when the bill was swung at the woman�s face, but was stopped short of making contact and causing a wound.

The attacker was described as Caucasian aged in her 30s, with brown hair and eyes and wearing a blue shirt.
