The assault comes a week after Hashim Mohamed, 18, was killed in a brutal knife attack in St Kilda.

After the teenager’s death, African leader Hanad Hersi said the streets of Melbourne were “full of blood”.

“We really need to start asking ourselves real hard questions about what’s really going on,” Mr Hersi said.

“What is happening to our young people? When did this level of violence become acceptable?

‘When was it okay to take a life? They are children, killed for what? Our young children are dropping like flies.

Police have yet to charge anyone for the deadly attack.

Youth gangs remain a primary focal point for Victoria Police, with a crackdown on gang crime underway.

From November 24-27, as part of Operation Alliance, Victoria Police arrested over 30 youth gang members in metropolitan Melbourne.

Police launched Operation Alliance in September 2020, a statewide operation to disrupt and dismantle youth gangs.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Mark Galliott said the police force’s collaborative efforts are breaking the cycle of recidivism.

“We will maintain a concentrated and combined focus on those who seek to commit violent crimes and endanger the safety of the rest of the community,” he said.

“However, we know that arrests and hearings are only one strategy to reduce youth crime and that the police also play a role in breaking the cycle of recidivism and diverting these people from a life of crime.

“A heartening sign, we continue to see increased compliance with bail conditions by those associated with youth gangs, which is a positive behavior change.”
