Sickening footage captures the moment when a FIFO employee launched an insane knife attack on his teenage ex-girlfriend right after she broke up.
Mark McLean, 32, was in prison on Tuesday for nine years after stabbing his 19-year-old ex-girlfriend in the chest outside her home in Balcatta, north Perth, on March 24.
The couple had been dating for four months, but a drug addict McLean assaulted the young woman when she told him, “I can’t do this anymore, you’re too full.”
CCTV vision showed the teen her estranged friend down her driveway while lovingly rubbing his back in an attempt to calm him down.
But in a split second, his mood changed and he pulled a knife from his waistband before performing a gruesome act of domestic violence that nearly killed her.

The footage showed that he then pulled her to the sidewalk and hit her on the concrete – only on the run when a neighbor came to her rescue.
After the attack, McLean posted intimate photos of his former partner online.
The couple started dating after an online meeting and McLean had fallen madly in love with his victim. The Western Australian reported.
She took him to hospital the night before the attack after threatening suicide.
But McLean released himself from the hospital and was on meth, ecstasy and diazepam when he broke into the woman’s house the next morning.
He kicked open her door and waved a knife as he began to make threats.
The woman already picked up a knife in her room and managed to calm McLean, convincing him to give up his weapon.
He agreed and she put both knives under her bed.

McLean left the house, but returned a short time later. He was calm until the woman said, “I can’t do this anymore, you’re too full.”
He then took out another knife – which was hidden in his waistband – and stabbed her after telling his victim that no one else could have her if he couldn’t.
He pleaded guilty to a charge of “committed with the intent to kill unlawfully, an act or omission that might endanger human life.”
Attorney Richard Lawson told the court that McLean fell madly in love with the woman and was “desperate” to make the relationship work.
McLean told his victim, “If I can’t have you, nobody can” before stabbing her
‘She was 19, he was 31. So he was at that age that he was looking for something more permanent. On the other hand, the complainant did not have the same intense feelings … [she] wasn’t that keen, ”said Mr. Lawson.
Mr. Lawson said his client became “extremely upset” and started using meth when the woman said she wanted an open relationship.
His behavior became “more intense, fleeting and erratic,” said Mr. Lawson.
Prosecutor Nicholas Cogin said the victim had tried to help her attacker, but “her life was seriously affected by this drug-induced condition that he persisted in.”
Mr. Cogin said it was “drug-induced mental health problems” that got McLean out of control.
McLean was sentenced to nine years in prison on Tuesday, but will be eligible for parole within seven years.
