The police had earlier informed people on Twitter about an ongoing area in Sydney's Central Business District (CBD).

Eye witnesses said members of the public swarmed the man and pinned him to the ground using a chair and a milk crate, after he was spotted walking around King and Clarence Street having tried to stab multiple people.

"As police made their way to the location, there were multiple reports the man had stabbed someone near the corner of King and Clarence Streets".

Police have confirmed a woman was found dead in a fourth-storey apartment on Clarence St, at 3:15pm.

"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.

"They were fearless and I can only use that word seriously - they were significantly courageous people", he said.

Superintendent Wood lauded the actions of the bystanders who restrained the alleged offender and called them "heroes". The attacker is now in police custody following the fearless actions of those who were present at the scene and were able to ... restrain him.
