He tried to get him off her and turned so he could see her face. As she turned and forced herself to lift her head, the man seemed to let go of her arms. When she raised her hands, she felt pain in her neck, touched it and saw all of her blood.
She screamed, “let me go” and he walked slowly away, throwing the knife into the vacant lot as she left. He never said anything during the attack and no property claims were made. When she headed to her door, he looked at her like he ‘didn’t care about a thing’ and then off by bike.
Ms. Clarke spent three days in the hospital for cutting injuries to her cheek, lip and around her ear, as well as injuries to her chest, face, and forearms.

Mr Hall added: “As she was walking down the ginnel [alley], she saw a man walking towards her dressed in dark clothing, with his hood over his face and his hands in his pockets. They crossed without incident, but Hayes reached the end of the ginnel [alley], looked both ways to make sure there were no witnesses, and then turned.
Mrs. Shirley heard footsteps running behind her and looked over her shoulder expecting to see someone running past. However, Hayes, without warning from her, grabbed her from behind her using her left arm and her hand across the front of her chest. He couldn’t do anything to stop it since the attack was so fast.
With her right hand, he then ran a knife blade across the front of her neck. The blade cut the left side of her neck to roughly the center line but luckily his coat and scarf prevented access with the blade to the right side of her neck and cut on the right side of the neck her. Coat. She screamed and Hayes ran off.
She did not say anything during the attack and did not try to steal anything from him; her intention was simply to cut her throat. She ran after him to try to stop him or get a better look at him, but she quickly lost sight of him.
Ms. Shirley fled to the home of her daughter near her and was treated for a 5 cm wound on the left side of her neck. Police feared the knife man would strike again and this time kill detainee Hayes after officers broadcast CCTV of the suspect riding his bike the night of Ms. Clark’s stabbing and he was recognized by friends.
He was initially detained under the Mental Health Act, but was discharged after psychiatrists concluded that he was fit and well when he was not smoking cannabis. He claimed to have little recollection of both attacks.
In a statement, Ms. Clarke said at the hearing that she had to change her hair color for fear that Hayes would attack her again and that she is now too afraid to go out alone at night.
She added: ‘I have a daily reminder of the attack due to my scars and regularly have nightmares. I don’t know why he did this, but I hope he gets the help he needs to change his ways. ‘
