A top Sydney real estate agent skipped around the house singing ‘I’m going to kill her’ before attempting to murder his love interest’s friend by slashing her with a samurai sword, a court has heard.

Extraordinary detail can be revealed of Karl Adon Howard’s horrific alleged attack on a 27-year-old woman he met online and her 29-year-old friend between 4.40am and 5.20am on Monday.

Sydney Magistrate Glenn Bartley read the police version of events onto the court record on Friday during a hearing about a non-publication order concerning the alleged victims.

According to the magistrate’s remarks, the ‘extremely traumatic’ evening began when the 29-year-old friend – who can only be referred to as ‘Victim 2’ – arrived at Howard’s Annandale property about 7.15pm on Sunday.

After chatting, Victim 2 noticed both Howard, 44, and her mate, appeared disoriented, were talking quickly and weren’t making much sense, the court heard.

‘Have you taken something?’ Victim 2 reportedly asked.

Howard ran around the property, saying ‘I want to keep drinking, I don’t want to go to sleep,’ the court heard.

Victim 2 would later learn Howard had taken four cialis pills (a brand of Viagra), snorted cocaine and wouldn’t disclose if he had consumed anything else.

Blood can be seen on the footpath directly opposite Howard's home, where his love interest and a friend ran for help after the alleged attack

Victim 2 attempted to calm Howard, before he allegedly announced: ‘I have to f***ing kill her’, the court heard.
