Migrant stabbed in Australia by a group of women he met through Tinder
A Ghanian migrant newly arrived in Australia struggled to get help after being stabbed in the head, neck and stomach in a frenzied attack on Thursday night by three women he met through the dating app Tinder, according to Australia's Seven Network.
The three caucasian women are believed to have turned on 26-year-old Augustine after he drove them from Richmond to Sunshine, in Melbourne, in what the police believe was an attempt to steal his car.
It's believed Augustine, whose last name has not been made public, connected with one of the women through Tinder earlier in the week and arranged to meet her and two friends in Richmond. He then agreed to drive them to the western suburbs.
As he drove, the women demanded the keys to his Volkswagen, and then started slashing him with a knife.

CCTV footage shows a man stagger from the car on the dark suburban street and then run back towards it as the three women fled in the opposite direction.
A local woman told the Seven Network : "I heard a man shouting and a woman. I heard a man say 'Get out' and then I heard a door slam and another door slam."
But it's believed that the man knocked on several doors in residential streets, to no avail, before two woman driving past pulled over to rescue him.
Caroline Tuivanuavou convinced her sister to pull over after spotting him lying on the side of McIntyre road, bleeding heavily.
In footage provided to the Seven Network by the sisters, Augustine moans "I'm dying", his face drawn, his chest covered in blood.
A woman's voice says: "No, you're not, we're going to take you to hospital".
"There was blood everywhere," Tuivanuavou told Seven News. "His hands were on his chest and I said to him 'Look, it's OK, help is coming so wait here, I will stay with you'."
The victim was taken to Melbourne's Sunshine Hospital by emergency services with non-life threatening injuries and is now at Royal Melbourne Hospital, where he has undergone surgery.
