My brother, he was the hero. He got a grip of him, along with another guy we dont know, and put a crate on his head. He was just mumbling religious things, he said.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said the men were heroes of the highest order.
Three members of the public, who can only be described as heroes of the highest order, have engaged this 21-year-old man and have placed him essentially under arrest even though he was brandishing a large butchers knife and was clearly dangerous, he told reporters on Tuesday night.
Superintendent Gavin Wood said the mens intervention had stopped other people from being hurt and described them as significantly brave.
These people are heroes, he told reporters. These members of the public have jumped into a situation which was extremely dangerous, extremely hostile and they brought a person who we will be alleging stabbed an innocent person for no specific reason into custody and allowed us to do our job.
Speaking about the incident again on Wednesday morning, Commissioner Fuller said everyone from the deputy premier to the police minister had spoken glowingly of the heroes.
In these situations we normally let the dust settle, because there could be others, he said.
You never want to miss that one person who may have acted courageously.
I will say again, they were heroes. And in time, we will recognise them. They wont be forgotten. But we have to make sure that we capture all of the heroes in this. If you see the footage, there were lots of people running into danger and I dont want to forget any of them at the same time. But I will meet with them and shake their hands and thank them in time.

See!?, you dont need a gun to protect & defend yourself...
Holding down the perp:
The attacker, named Mert Ney, has a history of mental health problems, homelessness and drug use. He was the son of Turkish Cypriot parents, and a muslim.
Schizophrenia often develops in the teens or twenties, and some recreational drugs (including the THC in marijuana) can induce or exacerbate episodes.
, “you dont need a gun to protect & defend yourself...”
Worked good on a bad guy that obayed the law.;)
That’s really boxing the perp in!
Oh, Hell Yeah PING
Hundreds of years of 1st cousin breeding.
What about prescibed psychotropic drugs?
A muslim said to be “mentally ill”. God Bless those who stopped him. If previous governments hadn’t allowed these people in, there wouldn’t be a need for such heroism.
Exactly eff them puss’ s.. if they would have never given up their right to bear arms in the first place they would have been heros
