Reports of stabbing in Sydney's CBD

Reports of stabbing in Sydney's CBD”

Cuthbert added that he had been living in Sydney for the past three years, and said he did not hesitate to chase the man because he sees Australia as his "new home".

One other woman was injured in the earlier incident.

O'Shaughnesy said he and his brother took off in hot pursuit, rushing down an escalator to chase the man.

Police Commissioner Mick Fuller says the attack "is not now classed as a terrorist incident" and that the man "has no links to terrorism".

Police are now searching his home. "They were fearless and I can only use that word seriously", he told reporters.

"A male offender has produced a knife and as a result a female victim, a female member of the public has been stabbed", Superintendent Gavin Wood told reporters a short time ago.

Jamie Ingram gave chase to distract the knifeman from pedestrians on York Street.

Police allege he stabbed one woman, and may have killed another in a separate incident.

Police and witnesses say they heard the suspect yelling "Allahu akbar", or "God is great".

Multiple people are then seen pinning him down with a crate on his head and two chairs holding his body down. At one point he climbs on the roof of a vehicle, yelling, as a man carrying a cafe chair seeks to corral him.

According to the BBC, Lee Cuthbert, Paul O'Shaughnessy and Luke O'Shaughnessy ran out from their office when they heard the commotion and ran out to catch the man; and Luke O'Shaughnessy said he forced a "chair over the man's legs, a chair over his torso and then a milk crate on his face" to hold him down.

"In our heads we were saying to each other, "Be careful, be careful, ' and we were asking witnesses, we were saying, 'What has he got, is there anything else?' 'Nah, it's just a knife" - so that made us press forward even more because you can tackle someone if it's like that, not if he's got a gun or whatever".

"These members of the public going about their day-to-day business have jumped into a situation which was extremely risky, extremely hostile, and they have brought a person - who we will be alleging stabbed an innocent person for no specific reason - into custody and allowed us to do our job".

Australian police said they had discovered a body near the scene of a knife rampage in central Sydney on Tuesday, but were still determining whether it was linked to the attack.

A NSW Fire and Rescue spokesman confirmed a crew was in the area and assisted police.

Cuthbert and his friends Paul and Luke O'Shaughnessy, all from Manchester in the United Kingdom, and Alex Roberts, from Cronulla, were shaken after the incident but said they did not hesitate once they saw the incident unfolding.

The man is suspected of stabbing at least one woman and trying to stab more people on the street in Sydney, Australia, on Tuesday.

It appears the man in question has been arrested.

Uber driver Leon Baghani said the assailant, clutching a knife, jumped on the hood and then the roof of his Mercedes as he was driving an elderly couple on the street where the violence occurred.
