“We believe the boy and his mother were murdered at the Taekwondo gym between 5.30pm and 6.30pm on Monday 19 February.”

Also, on the morning of the same day, a 39-year-old Korean man named Cho was found stabbed to death in his home. A police investigation revealed that they were all members of the same family.

Australian police announced that they arrested a 49-year-old Korean man, Mr. Yoo, a Taekwondo gym instructor, on suspicion of murdering them.

The police said that the deceased child was attending a Taekwondo gym run by Mr. Yoo.

The police believe that Mr. Yoo killed a woman and a child at a Taekwondo gym, and then killed Mr. Cho by traveling in the dead woman’s car.

However, the police have not revealed the motive for the crime.

“It’s very unusual. I’ve lived here for 15 years and this neighborhood is usually very quiet. So it’s very scary.”

Police said they were working with the Korean Consulate General in Sydney to contact Cho’s other family members.
