Sydney stabbing suspect taken into custody following horror attack

Police at the scene

"We have a female person with a stab wound to the back now being treated by paramedics and is en route to a Sydney hospital", police Superintendent Gavin Wood told reporters in Sydney.

A woman is taken by ambulance from Hotel CBD at the corner of King and York Street in Sydney, Australia.

Members of the public rushed to detain the man, using milk creates and chairs, before he was arrested by police and taken to Day Street Police Station on a stretcher.

Police have praised the extraordinary bravery of bystanders who ran towards danger today, confronting a man armed with a knife in Sydney's CBD and preventing potential tragedy.

Video footage on Twitter showed a young man running across a city intersection and jumping onto the hood of a auto, waving what appeared to be a knife.

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

'A guy said "he's gone that way!" and he was pretty quick, so we just ran after him straight down York Street and came over the road and people were moving away, ' Paul told Daily Mail Australia.

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

The group then worked together, according to interviews in The Age, to overcome the knife-wielding man.

Superintendent Wood lauded the actions of the bystanders who restrained the alleged offender and called them "heroes".

"What we can conclusively say is that the male offender was on his own", NSW police said.

"I want to acknowledge those members of the public who got involved".

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

"Everyone was just running away from where the fire brigade truck was and the next thing I saw this guy jumping over the auto". "These members of the public have jumped into this situation that was extremely hostile", Wood said."They have brought this person into custody and allowed us to do our job".

"Five or six others were chasing him behind, trying to stop him, they caught him and restrained him" in front of two popular cafes in the heart of the city, she said.

The incident unfolded at about 14:00 local time (04:00 GMT) on Tuesday near Clarence St and King St, a busy area in the city centre.

"A number of crime scenes have been established", a spokesperson said.
