A 19-year-old man is “lucky to be alive” after a dangerous brick attack yesterday afternoon.
The teen’s mother – who did not want to be named – told the Coastal Times her son has a broken left wrist following the shocking incident.
A brick was thrown at the 19-year-old’s car about 4.30pm yesterday at the busy intersection of Gordon Road and Mandurah Road.

The “full-size” brick was thrown through the teen’s window injuring his arm.
The mother said her son was lucky the brick did not hit his chest or head.
“He was heading north and his eyes were watching traffic in front, he didn’t look up until it was too late,” she said.
“He is so lucky to be alive.”
She wants to warn others about the dangers of throwing bricks and objects at cars and encouraged anyone with dashcam footage of the incident to get in touch with Mandurah Police.
This is the second attack on a car this year.
In April, an elderly Dawesville man had a hammer thrown through his window on the way home from work.
WA Police has asked anyone who may have information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online.
