‘I shut my eyes and I still see it all,’ says Bourke St attack survivor, Rod Patterson.

The retired Launceston businessman and local icon was stabbed in the head on Friday 9th November, when Hassan Khalif Shire Ali went on an attack in Bourke St in Melbourne.

Rod’s wife, Maree, was close by shopping, unaware of what was going on outside.

Rod and Maree join Brian Carlton in the studio this morning for an extremely in depth and emotional interview about the attack, which Rod says he remembers every second of.
