A former hotshot real estate agent who helped complete a multi-billion dollar real estate transaction has been charged with stabbing his mother outside his home in an upmarket suburb of eastern Sydney.
Matthew Brian Ramsay didn’t leave his jail cell in Waverly District Court Tuesday morning after being charged with allegedly attacking Helen Coulston, a mother of two.
A 45-year-old woman was allegedly stabbed in the chest after she walked out the door of her $4.5 million home in Dover Heights around 12:30 pm on Monday, according to court documents.
Defense attorney Andrew O’Brien addressed the matter before Justice Jacqueline Milledge on Tuesday morning, but Mr. Ramsey did not appear.
He has been charged with inflicting bodily injury/serious bodily harm with intent to murder.
He told the court that his client was also charged with shoplifting.
O’Brien told the court, “We know there’s a big divide.
O’Brien did not apply for bail for the real estate agent, deferring a serious personal injury charge to be dealt with in October.
But Ramsay was charged with theft in July after stealing $31 worth of snacks from Ampol Foodary, according to court documents.
Ramsay allegedly stole a Snickers bar, two Oak brand flavored milks, a bag of Mars Pod chocolates, and two Ice brand flavored milk drinks.
His attorney told the court he plans to file a mental health petition to dismiss the theft charges.
Ramsey is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 5 for his application.
“If your mental health application fails, you’re pleading guilty,” O’Brien said.
Ms. Coulson’s heartbreaking scream alerted nearby Trady to her ordeal and rushed to her aid.
Peter Haramis told NCA NewsWire that he ran after hearing her screams becoming more panicky.
“She was just yelling, ‘Help! Help! He’s going to kill me!’
“Then I ran up the hill and when I got to the steps in front of it, she was on her knees and he was on top of her so his chest was on her back.
“He looked at me and froze for a second. I thought I had to run to him here. I don’t know what will happen.”
But then the woman pulled the knife away from the man and threw it in front of Mr Haramis onto the grass.
“I picked up a knife…he started walking towards me,” he said.
“She jumped up, ran around the house and locked the door.
“He was just walking towards me and saying, ‘Give me a knife.
“I said: ‘No, you don’t understand that.’
“Then the man quietly turned around and started up the hill towards the car.”
Haramis immediately called the police and an ambulance, followed the man to the car and listened to the description of the car.
Ramsay was arrested some time later at Campbell Pde, Bondi.
Coulston is in stable condition at the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
