Man claims fumes caused the attack

Unsure why he slashed the throat of an 82-year-old woman and her son buying a printer, Adam Curtis Brown thought ink fumes could be to blame.

Brown, 43, was hit by pills and alcohol when he became enraged in Hervey Bay, north of Brisbane in April 2018, Brisbane High Court heard.

The injured mother and son ran onto Hervey Bay Street and stopped neighbors after being stabbed in the neck and torso in April 2018.

But Brown still can’t explain why he sustained, senseless and unprovoked attack on a 54-year-old man and his elderly mother with a retractable blade.

Brown arrived at their property to discuss purchasing the printer, but became restless and unpredictable, and at one point took off his shirt.

Brown told him to calm down and stabbed the man in the neck with a box cutter he had.

The man thought he was dying and called for his mother.

“He got his mother’s attention so she could call an ambulance, but blood spurted out when he tried to scream,” Chief Prosecutor Chris Cook said on Friday.

In all, the man lost half a liter of blood and suffered a severed trachea, which later required a tracheostomy.

He was still able to attack Brown after attacking his mother and cutting her hand.
