Sydney incident: Man arrested over stabbing in city centre

The Alleged Sydney Knife Attacker Was Subdued By Punters With Chairs & A Milk Crate

"He was fearless. He was completely fearless", he said, adding that he had "a big scary knife" in his hand. He'd already stabbed one woman at a nearby hotel, police later said, and tried to attack others in the busy commercial district on Tuesday.

That's when a bystander, armed only with a wooden chair, jumped into action.

Reportedly assisted by axe-wielding firefighters, the men then used a chair to bring down the suspect before restraining his head with a milk crate.

"They were armed with crowbars and one man had an axe and another man, I think had a firefighting implement", David said.

Lee Cuthbert, Paul O'Shaughnessy and Luke O'Shaughnessy, all from Manchester, were working in the area when they heard the man attempting to stab several people outside. He said the attacker had been arrested and "the threat has been negated".

NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said the men were heroes "of the highest order".

"It is not now classed as a terrorist incident".

"We went down the escalator and continued to chase the guy where other people were going away because obviously he was wielding a knife". The man is in police custody.

NSW Police have now confirmed the death is linked to this afternoon's alleged knife attack in the Sydney CBD. He said that after the woman was stabbed, the man "attempted to stab multiple people".

Gavin Wood, a superintendent with the New South Wales police, praised members of the public who restrained the suspect, who has not been named.

"Shoot me", the man could be heard screaming as he raced erratically down the street.

In a video captured by bystanders, the man hops on a vehicle idling at a stop light.

The man was allegedly waving a large knife and then jumped back down from the vehicle roof and into the middle of the road, shouting as his pursuers continued to close in.

"I froze for a split second but then I thought, "I'm hoping he's not covered in any explosives or anything", he said. "We restrained him and then the rest was just waiting for police I suppose".

"He was fearless, he was completely fearless. It was a scary moment, I'm sure, for a lot of people in Sydney", the driver told Channel Nine.

The man who approached the knifeman with a cafe chair.

"He had blood on the knife and there was blood all over his clothing, so hopefully no-one was [badly] injured, fingers crossed it wasn't serious". It was unclear whether the man had stabbed anyone else. The suspect was later formally arrested by police. About an hour later, authoritiesdiscovered another body.

Her body was found in a unit block above Clarence St Cyclery, which was forced to close after police set up a crime scene in front and behind the shop.
