Westfield Bondi Junction stabbing: Chilling moment surfer realises he was ... trends now

The man who murdered six people during a terrifying rampage at Westfield Bondi Junction asked a local man for surfing lessons just months before the attack. 

Joel Cauchi, 40, stabbed five women and one man to death and critically injured 12 others with a 30cm hunting knife around at 3.20pm on Saturday. 

Cauchi was shot dead by NSW Police Inspector Amy Scott who has been hailed a hero for ending the killing spree and giving CPR to the victims.

Bondi man Stefan Deutsch shared the disturbing moment he realised he had exchanged Facebook messages with the killer just six months earlier. 

Mr Deutsch shared a screenshot of their short interaction on TikTok, which began after Cauchi responded to his advert for surfing lessons. 

'Hi I am interested in the surfing lessons in Sydney, can I apply please?' Cauchi said. 

'Hi, yes I can give you surf lessons!' Mr Deutsch replied. 

'Is it free?' Cauchi asked. 

'Heya, no, it's not free sorry,' Mr Deutsch said.  

Cauchi read the message but never replied.

'Hi I am surfing Bondi this afternoon if anyone wants to meet there for a surf!' he said.

Less than a week later, Cauchi would be shot dead after killing five women and one man in a violent stabbing spree that has shocked the world. 

The victims include:
