Friends of the Sydney knifeman responsible for a rampage through the city centre claim he had recently converted to Islam and had threatened to launch an attack on a music festival.

Mert Ney, 21, was arrested after he was subdued by heroic bystanders about 2pm using chairs and milk crates in Wynyard Street, after he allegedly killed a woman, 21, believed to be a sex worker, and stabbed another woman, 41, outside a pub.

The knifeman was seen on the corner of King and Clarence Street on Tuesday afternoon, wielding a large blade and calling on someone to shoot him.

A man was in the same class as Ney at Blacktown Boys High School said he was shocked at reports he was behind the attacks.

He ’ d always ask what she had done to it, but the response was always the same: ‘ I have no idea. He was a computer WHIZ who could take a computer apart and put it back together again. But he was going off to university soon, and what would his mum do then?

‘Howdy, folks,’ the shop owner said as they entered, which was not so much ‘Welcome to Bardstown’ as ‘You break it, you buy it.’ Sarah suspected it was an age-appropriate comment, as they didn ’ t look like the most responsible bunch, despite the opposite being true in her case.

'He was talking about going to a festival... maybe he was going to do the attack there,' the school friend said.

'He just had a vibe, he was just an odd person - he didn't have many friends.'

Ney, 21, grew up in a weatherboard home in Marayong, near Blacktown, the middle sibling of two siblings and the son of Turkish-Cypriot parents.

'He was not much of a talker,' said Reen Elomari, who went to Marayong Public School with him.

'He always used to walk fast, not many friends, never used to say anything.'

'I always used to see him roam around the streets alone. I would see him around my house. I'd see him maybe a couple of times (at the shops at Westpoint), just alone'.

One of his sisters would play hot potato in the front yard of one of Ms Elomari's relatives, but the shy boy refused to participate and would stand there with his arms crossed.

Police are investigating whether the alleged attacker had escaped from a mental institution on Tuesday.

They do not believe it is a terror-related incident, and said the alleged attacker did not have links to any terrorist organisations - despite witnesses reporting the attacker was muttering religious slogans including 'Allahu Akbar'.

But NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said they found information on the man including a USB stick 'suggesting he had some ideologies related to terrorism'.

The thumb drive allegedly also referenced mass shootings in New Zealand and the USA - including March's Christchurch terror attack.

Commissioner Fuller added the suspect had been known to police, although his prior history did not compare to his alleged actions in the heart of Sydney's CBD.
