Superintendent Naila Hassan said four members of the public were stabbed in the “random” attacks.

Members of the public who acted or helped, including someone using a crutch, “acted bravely” to attack the man with “a really big knife,” she said.

Police said the incident unfolded around 11:18 am, when the man stabbed the occupant of a property.

He then headed towards the beach in the North Shore area, where three people near a bus stop were also stabbed.
