Police said the wounded woman was stable and there were no immediate reports of other injuries, despite "a number of attempted stabbings by the same offender".

That's when a bystander, armed only with a wooden chair, jumped into action.

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.

"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. "I thought it was a scene from a television crime show but that quickly turned out not to be the case".

"You just stabbed a chick, mate", one visibly upset witness tells the suspect.

The man was allegedly waving a large knife and then jumped back down from the auto roof and into the middle of the road, shouting as his pursuers continued to close in.

But police say the man did not have any known links to terror groups, and that he acted alone.

They eventually knocked him down with a cafe chair, and then used a milk crate to hold his head to the footpath as first firefighters then police arrived to restrain him.

"To approach a person with a mindset of obviously what this person [had], with clear evidence of a stabbing previously, these people are heroes".

He drove off later witnessing the men giving chase.

"He stabbed a chick in broad daylight", a man can be heard saying on the video, obtained by Channel 7.

The witness suggests killing the suspect, while others tell the witness to stop and to wait for the police. About an hour later, authoritiesdiscovered another body.

"Inquiries are underway after the body of a woman was found in side a unit on Clarence street Sydney about 3.15pm today".

"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.

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

Speaking to journalists after the arrest, he said: "They were significantly fearless people".

New South Wales police commissioner Mick Fuller called the attacks in the street six minutes of "terrifying carnage", as The Guardian reported. "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".
