As for those that apprehended the attacker:

"Ay mate, you got a license for that weapon (milkcrate) that you used?"

The woman fatally stabbed as part of a rampage in Sydney’s CBD was a sex worker the alleged attacker had planned to meet.

Perhaps a DoS attack? :roll:

Nice to see there were some proper Brit lads on hand to help our mates from Down Under out...

Quote:
Three British men were among those who helped take the man down.

Lee Cuthbert, Paul O'Shaughnessy and Luke O'Shaughnessy, all from Greater Manchester, were working in an office nearby when they heard the commotion outside and ran out to help.

"I could have easily just looked out of the window and not done anything," Luke O'Shaughnessy, a former Thai boxer, told the BBC. "I thought we've got to run towards it."

He described how he helped force "a chair over his legs, a chair over his torso and then a milk crate on his face" to keep the man in place.

Mr O'Shaughnessy said he was feeling "shocked" but happy that everyone he knew was alright, considering that "some people haven't got that luxury tonight".

It's Straya mate, you can probably get away with crating a drongo there. ;)

Probably just non-Oz journalists who couldn't understand the dialect . . .
