    RUSH HOUR: Chair, crate heroes of Sydney stabbing celebrated online

    The heroes of the Sydney stabbing have been celebrated online, after they were able to subdue a lone knifeman terrorising bystanders in the CBD yesterday.

    Mert Nay, 21, was shown in alarming video wandering the streets of Sydney's CBD about 2pm yesterday, yelling “Allahu Akbar!” and taunting bystanders to shoot him in the face, as he waved a large butcher's knife at them.

    Video shows Mr Ney being chased by a group of brave bystanders, some of whom had armed themselves with cafe chairs and milk crates.

    During his rampage, Mr Ney allegedly stabbed a woman, 41, in the back, at the Hotel CBD, before trying to stab at countless others, as he wandered the streets. Police also believe Mr Ney was involved in the death of a woman, 21, whose body was found in an apartment on Clarence Street shortly after the attack.

    Sydney stabbing: Mert Ney’s missing five day

    Missing five days of Sydney stabbing suspect Mert Ney

    Detectives are working to piece together the movements of accused knifeman Mert Ney in the days leading up to his alleged stabbing attack in the Sydney CBD on Tuesday, which left one woman dead and another with serious injuries.

    The 21-year-old, who has a history of mental illness and drug abuse, walked out of Blacktown Hospital last Thursday after reportedly being treated for an overdose.

    His whereabouts between then and 2pm on Tuesday, when he emerged on the corner of Clarence and King streets wielding a 30 centimetre butcher’s knife and covered in blood, is likely to be a key focus of the investigation.


    According to the Telegraph report, the weapon possession charge was dismissed with no conviction recorded on the condition he not commit another offence in the next nine months and also seek mental health treatment.

    Ney’s relationship, if any, with the woman he is accused of murdering in an apartment on Clarence Street is also a focus.

    Homicide detectives are investigating the possibility he had a relationship with the sex worker, 21, after they met on classifieds website Locanto.

    Police discovered the sex worker’s body, her throat slit, around 3.15pm in the unit inside Clarence House, a residential unit at 104 Clarence Street near Wynyard.

    World reacts to Sydney stabbing

    Video of attack at link

    The world’s media has reported on the bravery of bystanders who helped restrain a man in Sydney’s CBD after stabbing multiple people.

    The Washington Postpublished a piece entitled “‘Significantly brave’ bystanders use chairs and a milk crate to trap man on stabbing rampage in Sydney”.

    The Post used a quote from NSW Police Superintendent Gavin Wood praising those who subdued the stabbing suspect, Mert Ney, before he could hurt anyone else.

    “A bystander, armed only with a wooden chair, jumped into action. Others quickly helped. Soon, the civilians subdued the attacker, pinning him to the pavement with chairs and a milk crate until police arrived,” the Post reported.

    The Express in the UK hailed the actions of the men with a headline, British heroes from Manchester take down knifeman on rampage.

    “Lee Cuthbert, Paul O’Shaughnessy and Luke O’Shaughnessy, all from Manchester, were working in the area when they heard the man attempting to stab several people outside.

    Mert Ney had been listed as a missing person by his family following a "domestic violence situation", which prompted a police "concern for welfare report", in the days leading up to Tuesday's fatal stabbing rampage in Sydney's CBD.

    Mr Ney, 20, was arrested in dramatic scenes near York St after he allegedly ran through the city covered in blood, brandishing a bloody butcher's knife, stabbing one woman in the back and fatally slashing the throat of another.

    "Police had taken a report for a domestic violence situation, so he was on the system [for authorities to] 'keep a look out for him'," said NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller on Wednesday.

    He confirmed that the 20-year-old had recently "self-admitted himself [to a facility] following a medical issue" prompting subsequent mental health assessments.

    Search warrants were conducted Tuesday night at Mr Ney's family home in Maryong and at another property, in Blacktown.

    Police say he had left the family home and may have been "couchsurfing or homeless for some time", and recently living at the Blacktown property.

    Commissioner Fuller said the joint agency counter terrorism unit had met since 7am on Wednesday to re-examine Tuesday's events, adding that the investigation was ongoing, but that it was still thought not to be a terrorist-related incident.

    "I feel as though what he has on social media, what we may well find in his bedroom will... shine more light on why this crime happened," he said.
