Police said the man was allegedly stabbed at a home on Kapinka Drive in Munno Para West before he was chased out of his home by an offender, who was in a car.

The victim was then allegedly mowed down near the highway.

Neighbours reported hearing the cars race up and down the street as security footage captured them speeding from the home.

“It was right in front of our house. It’s quite scary … there’s one sports car, (it sounds) so loud,” one resident told 9News.

“It might hit my house.”
