"They said: "It's a crime scene, you can't come out", said the woman, who declined to give her name.

While the motive of the attack is not yet known, the man has been taken into custody, police said.

Video footage on Twitter showed a man running across a city intersection and jumping onto the hood of a vehicle, waving what appeared to be a knife.

According to witnesses, the man, who was wielding a large butcher's knife, jumped on to a moving vehicle before being chased and detained by three members of the public using chairs and pipes.

A woman's body was found in an apartment building near the scene, at a busy intersection in Australia's most populous city.

Police say they are investigating reports the man was heard yelling "allahu akbar" during the rampage.

"The motivation for this attack has not yet been determined as Police are continuing with their enquires".

The 37-year-old told The Guardian that "extremist" slogans had been shouted before adding on the distressing incident: "We just finished lunch. we're just based on King Street and we have a window slightly open so we can hear noise and traffic".

Uber driver Leon Baghani said the assailant, clutching a knife, jumped on the hood and then the roof of his Mercedes as he was driving an elderly couple on the street where the violence occurred.

'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".

They do not believe it is terror-related, despite witnesses reporting the attacker was screaming religious slogans including "Allahu Akbar".

Mr Vaux said the patrons at the cafe the man ran past quickly realised they needed to help apprehend the man, pinning him down with chairs and a crate.

"Inquiries are under way after the body of a woman was found in a unit on Clarence St.in Sydney at 3:15 p.m.", an NWS Police spokesperson told The Washington Post.

"No other person was complicit at this stage", Wood said, adding that there were no other injuries.

Police said that the man allegedly stabbed a woman in the back and "attempted to stab multiple people".

Other images show the suspect being pinned down with a chair and a milk crate, then being taken away by police.

Police credited the bystanders who took on the attacker, with Wood calling them "heroes".

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

"I just thought is my brother going to be OK as we ran towards him".

A number of crime scenes have been established and a number of road closures are in place.
