Reports of stabbing in Sydney's CBD

Superintendent Gavin Wood of NSW Police Force said that the young woman who was stabbed in the back in Hotel CBD was in a stable condition in St Vincent's Hospital.

Australian police are investigating unconfirmed reports of an armed man in downtown Sydney, a police spokeswoman said on Tuesday, and witnesses reported seeing an injured man carrying a knife.

Police said the suspect - a 21-year-old man from Maryong in New South Wales - attempted to stab several people before being arrested.

A United Kingdom man who helped chase and tackle the alleged Sydney stabber who was "covered in blood and wielding a knife", says he didn't think twice because he sees Australia as his "new home".

7 News reported that the suspect yelled "Allahu Akbar" as he ran down the street, before he was apprehended.

He said that the man "was shouting radical things" but that he did not want to repeat them.

"To approach a person, with clear evidence of a stabbing, these people are heroes". A 21-year-old woman, now unidentified, was later found dead in a unit block nearby.

"We just finished lunch", he told the Guardian news outlet.
