Sydney witnessed dramatic scenes after a man was held by a number of persons after he knifed a woman on a road.
Pedestrians at the scene immediately intervened to stop the man and kept him on the ground until police officers arrived.
The stabbed woman was admitted in a hospital, while another woman was found dead at an apartment on the same street. Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said that the aggressor acted alone and suffers from a mental condition.
Fuller added that although the youth was known to the Police, his previous actions do not compare with today’s attack.
