Police will allege Tran deliberately hit the younger man with his vehicle before repeatedly striking him with an axe in a frenzied attack.

Police seized the axe and arrested Tran, who was then transported to a nearby hospital for an unrelated medical condition.

Acting Inspector Mitch Corfield described the crime scene as ‘quite confronting’ for police and others witnesses.

‘It was a violent attack,’ Inspector Corfield told reporters on Friday.

A resident who witnessed the incident said he saw the alleged attacker try to run away, so he tackled him and called police.

‘He had an axe on his side … when I tackled him I saw the axe and I just threw it away,’ the man told 2GB radio.

The 75-year-old was eventually released from hospital and taken to Liverpool Police Station where he was charged with murder. 

Tran did not appear in Liverpool Local Court on Friday, with the matter adjourned until May 13, where he will appear in court via video link.
