One stabbed in central Sydney street attack

But he did not appear to be acting for any terrorist groups and the attack was not being treated as terrorism, police added.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that police are not sure of the motive, and added that police Superintendent Gavin Wood said police "were aware of reports the man had shouted "Allahu Akbar" but could not confirm if they were true".

It is believed the man was carrying a USB drive containing documents promoting terrorist viewpoints with references to recent attacks in the United States and New Zealand.

"From everything we have at the moment, there are no links with him to any terrorist organisations, no information that he was working on behalf of anyone else, but reinforcing that this investigation is live and ongoing", Fuller said. He also congratulated the firefighters involved.

Police urged the public to avoid the area nearby King and Clarence Streets.

Images broadcast by Australian media showed an agitated man jumping on the roof of a vehicle brandishing a knife, appearing to shout "shoot me", and the Arabic phrase for "God is great".

The injured woman was taken to hospital in a stable condition. He leapt onto the hood of a Mercedes-Benz auto and waved a large butcher's knife from its roof.

At around two this afternoon we received multiple phone calls about a 21-year-old man from Marayong, in the vicinity of King Street armed with a knife and wearing a balaclava.

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

Three British men were among those who helped take the man down.

College bribery scandal: Vlogger Oliva Jade’s message to the gossipers
Olivia Jade , a popular YouTube vlogger with almost 2 million followers, saw her budding career implode overnight. Olivia Jade's career isn't the only one hurting from the scandal either.

Paul O'Shaughnessy, 37, and his brother Luke, 30, from Manchester, England, were in their office when they heard a disturbance outside.

"I could have easily just looked out of the window and not done anything", Luke O'Shaughnessy, a former Thai boxer, told the BBC.

"I don't know whether it's an instinct thing but we just thought we've got to restrain this guy from doing any more", he said. Along with other passers-by, they used a milk crate and a chair to keep him pinned to the ground, he said.

The driver, who did not give his name, told Nine Network News that the man fell off the auto when he accelerated and turned down a side street.

"He added: "I froze for probably a split second but then I thought I'm hoping that he's not covered in any explosives or anything, so I quickly accelerated so he can get off the vehicle". The Uber driver then quickly accelerated to force the man off his vehicle. "They said: "It's a crime scene, you can't come out", said the woman, who declined to give her name.

"The guy had blood on his shirt". I can say he does have a history of mental health, but at this stage, I can't expand on that.

"I think he was trying to smash the driver side window on a random auto".

The man is believed to be responsible for the slaying a woman in a downtown Sydney apartment before wounding another woman nearby and attempting to stab other people Tuesday.

"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".
