Tradie Peter Haramis rescues woman from stabbing attack in Sydney


Greek Australian tradesman, Peter Haramis, has described the moment he came to the rescue of a woman who was stabbed in the chest by a family friend in the doorway of her Sydney home.

According to The Daily Telegraph, a 46-year-old woman is in a critical but stable condition in hospital after the daylight attack at her home in Dover Heights.

37-year-old Mr Haramis was eating lunch on a nearby block with two concreters when they heard the woman’s screams and began walking, then running up the hill as the sounds became more panicked.

“She was just screaming: ‘Help me! Help! He’s gonna kill me!’” Mr Haramis told NCA NewsWire.

When he arrived at the triple-level home, the woman was doubled over at her door with a man standing over her.

“He sort of looked at me and he froze for a second and I thought, I’m gonna have to run at him here. I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Mr Haramis said.

But just as he was about to start running towards the man, the female victim took advantage of the split second her attacker had stopped to get the knife off him and threw it past Mr Haramis on the grass.

He was able to pick up the knife, which had “about four centimetres of blood” along it, and the female ran inside her house and locked the door.

“He was just walking towards me saying: ‘Give me the knife.’ I said: ‘No, you’re not getting it.’ Then the guy just calmly turns around and starts walking up the hill to his car,” Mr Haramis explained.

Mr Haramis immediately called for police and an ambulance, then followed the man up to his car to get a description of the vehicle.

It wasn’t long before police surrounded her alleged attacker, a 46-year-old man, who had driven his white Audi vehicle to a road at Bondi.

He was arrested at gunpoint and taken to Waverley police station where he has been assisting detectives with inquiries.
