Eyewitnesses’ confession

A witness who was in a neighbouring cafe with his two small children when the incident started described it as “carnage.”
The man, who wished to remain anonymous, told ABC News that he had seen a man “stabbing people indiscriminately” abruptly.
Located east of Sydney’s central business district and near the well-known Bondi Beach, the Westfield mall is a large shopping facility where the attack occurred.
Hundreds of people, including many families with small children, flocked to one of the largest and most well-known shopping centres in the nation on this typical Saturday, the first day of the school break.
Shoppers who were horrified by the attacks have spoken of their shock.
When Johnny, 33, heard a disturbance while out shopping, he turned to witness a mother and her infant being attacked. Johnny was on a visit from the Central Coast of New South Wales.
“She was suffering a stabbing. He claimed, “Everyone was in shock [and] didn’t know what to do.”

Authorities take

According to the police, the knifeman entered the mall around 15:10 local time, left, and then came back a few minutes later to start his rampage.

Only when a female police officer who had been stationed nearby and challenged the man did the attack come to an end. According to the police, she shot him when he raised his knife towards her.

Looking forward

Later, NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb stated that the knifeman was a 40-year-old man who was known to police but was not suspected of having terrorist sentiments. He has yet to be formally identified, but authorities believe he acted alone, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

“I’m not sure who he is right now. You’d understand that this is quite raw. “Inquiries are new, and we are still attempting to identify the offender in this case,” Cooke said.
