A Rockingham police officer was attacked with a samurai sword in a high-profile incident on Parkin Street last Wednesday.
Residents expressed their thoughts on the Telegraph’s Facebook page in the aftermath.
This is disgusting, please put the person responsible for this horrible act in jail forever. Dellas Ritchie
Great to hear that the police officer is making a good recovery. Sandra Keating
The charges should also include attempted murder. Andre Karen Robert
What is wrong with people? It is seriously not ok to intentionally hurt another person. I hope the police officer is doing ok; he was simply doing his job. Amanda Dawn
So scary, all the best for the officer's recovery. Thankful for police and the dedication they put in to making our streets safer. Kirsten Kerrisk
