One female patient with a single stab wound in her upper back is being taken to St Vincent's Hospital.

One woman was attacked, New South Wales police have confirmed.

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

"Officers from Sydney city police area command are on the scene and will be conducting inquiries into whether the incident was linked to an earlier stabbing on King and Clarence Street", police told Yahoo News Australia.

A man allegedly armed with what has been described as a machete has been taken into custody by police.

Detective Superintendent Gavin Wood told reporters that they intervened in the face of "incredible danger". I want to acknowledge those members of the public who got involved. They were courageous and I can only use that word seriously.

"They were bold, they were courageous".

"We don't know the causation or rationale for his actions today, again its part of the investigations as we go forward".

One witness, Marcon, told the Daily Mail Australia: "He was trying to smash a driver side window of a random auto with the knife".

Witness Zak Barry said he saw the man fall down on York St "and as he's falling he dropped a kitchen knife".

It's understood the woman had suffered knife wounds to her throat.

Fortnite World Champ "Bugha" swatted during Sunday livestream
Part of what makes swatting so unsafe is the potential for law enforcement to harm the swatting target or their loved ones. After Bizzle clutched up and won the game, he and Dubs were trying to figure out what happened to Bugha .

The pair chased the man and then managed to get a grip on him with the help of a third person.

"Please avoid the area", police said on Twitter. Police at the scene have confirmed there have been no fatal injuries.

"He ran all the way back to near my work where a lot of others had cornered him for the police".

"People were chasing him by that stage".

"So insane! A random dude just started stabbing people in the city right outside where we were having lunch", @JackHuddo said on Twitter.

He said the crowd was "shaken up, that's for sure".

Video shows the man jumping onto a vehicle roof in the middle of the street before being restrained by members of the public with milk crates and chairs.

A witness can be heard saying "he just stabbed a chick in broad daylight".

The attacker appeared to be agitated and had blood splattered on his shirt and was carrying a large knife, an eye witness told radio station 2GB.

An Uber driver said he saw people running away "and next thing I see this guy jumping over the vehicle, he went over the bonnet, and went on top of the car". He said the man appeared to be aged 23 to 24 and looked like he was "on something".
