A YOUNG father stabbed on his walk home after a night out with friends near Mandurah called an ambulance himself as he bled to death, his grieving partner has told.
Lashana Poulter paid tribute to her 27-year-old partner Axel Boreski, who is believed to have been stabbed on Leighton Road in Halls Head about 5am yesterday.
Police were questioning two men in their 20s in relation to his death on Saturday. Police were tight-lipped about the details surrounding the death except to say the man died after an incident.
Ms Poulter said she was trying to process the tragic loss of her partner and the father to her children, and was “taking things a minute at a time”.
“He was a loving father and stepfather, he was the sort of person who would do anything to help others,” she said.
“He would give the shirt off his back if need be, he also loved drawing and was due to start a course this coming semester to help pursue his love of drawing and turn it into a career.
Ms Poulter also confirmed her partner had called the ambulance himself.
The Greenfields man leaves behind his four-year-old daughter Summer and three-year-old stepson Dallas.
Ms Poulter said Mr Boreski was found alone by nearby residents after his death.
“He was out with friends and walking home when it happened,”Ms Poulter said.
Mr Boreski’s mother, Adele Lee, posted a heart-wrenching comment on Facebook yesterday, saying: “My son Axel Boreski was stabbed in the heart this morning he is dead ... Axel we are all going to miss you so much, our hearts are broken, we love you my boy.”
Forensic officers scoured the scene for clues, while police divers were also called in to search local waters. It is unsure whether they were looking for a weapon.
