Sydney incident: Man arrested over stabbing in city centre

Sydney incident: Man arrested over stabbing in city centre”

The body of a woman has been found inside an apartment in Sydney's CBD and detectives are working to establish if her death is linked to a nearby stabbing incident.

One female patient with a single stab wound in her upper back is being taken to St Vincent's Hospital.

"Inquiries are underway after the body of a woman was found inside a unit on Clarence Street about 3.15pm", a police spokesperson said.

"Officers. are on the scene and will be conducting inquiries as to whether this incident is linked to an earlier stabbing at a hotel", a police spokeswoman told AAP.

NSW Police Superintendent Gavin Wood has commended the members of the public who detained him.

The man has been taken to Day Street Police Station.

NSW Police described the situation as very risky and hailed the courageous actions of those who had trapped the attacker. I want to acknowledge those members of the public who got involved.

"I've even seen three undercover cop cars pull up and blokes running from them down the street", he said.

"They were significantly courageous people", Supt Wood said.

"We don't know the causation or rationale for his actions today, again its part of the investigations as we go forward".

"My immediate impression was that it was a scene from a crime show being shot, but then that quickly turned out not to be the case and the man ran down the road towards the cafe where patrons there must have tripped him up and they then put a milk crate over his head".

"Please avoid the area", police said on Twitter.

Police are yet to confirm any other injuries but are due to update the media shortly.

"He ran all the way back to near my work where a lot of others had cornered him for the police".

"What I can say conclusively, that male offender was on his own. and there's no other person complicit at this stage".

Jack Huddo wrote on Twitter: "A random dude just started stabbing people in the city right outside where we were having lunch".

He said the crowd was "shaken up, that's for sure".

More footage has emerged showing the moment the knife-wielding man was restrained.

A witness can be heard saying "he just stabbed a chick in broad daylight".

"He did have a knife in his hand... he had a little bit of blood on his shirt".

Listener Peter tells Ben Fordham the attacker was chasing another man.

NSW Police arrested the man, who was barefoot and appeared to be a highly-agitated state.
