Sydney stabbing: Knife-wielding man arrested in CBD after woman injured


A knife-wielding attacker has been arrested in the centre of Sydney after leaving at least one woman injured.

The assailant was detained by police after being restrained by members of the public, local media reported. 

One woman was taken to hospital in a stable condition following the incident, according to ABC News.

NSW police urged the public to stay away from the corner of King and Clarence Streets as the operation continued.  

In footage shared on social media, the alleged assailant can be seen jumping onto the bonnet of a car wielding a knife.

The car moves forward, prompting him to fall backwards onto the ground before he is chased by members of the public. 

He can be heard shouting: “Shoot me, f—ing shoot me in the f—ing head, shoot me, I want to f—ing die.” 

One video shows him being pinned to the ground by members of the public while another showed him being led away by police.
