"I thought I don't care, I can take him whoever he is... We ran around and made sure he didn't cause any more havoc."

"He said 'I'd sort it out' and I've said 'Yeah, I would'."

Paul, a father-of-two, said his instinct meant he did not think about his own safety.

"So it was almost instinctively around that to go 'Right, well let's sort it out'. I didn't even think about - and no disrespect to them - my young family.

"I just thought, 'Is my brother going to be alright?' as we were running towards him.

"Luke's straight in there on top of him and I'm looking at the scene going 'there's a big knife there which is covered in blood'.

"Luke, in fairness, did not let him go, he didn't let go of the guy until he was fully cuffed and they'd picked him up. He's really heroic to me in my eyes, he's my brother."

Paul said his actions were a way of giving back to the country he has lived in for 11 years.

"The thing I will reflect on is that I've given something back today by doing what's right and that the British can do Britain proud by coming to another country and doing what they can to help.

"Our values as brothers is we are protectors," he added.

Other people, including two firefighters, also helped to restrain the suspect.

New South Wales Police Superintendent Gavin Wood said he wanted to acknowledge the members of the public who got involved.

"They are brave, and I can only use that word seriously.

"They are significantly brave people. They approach the person... with clear evidence of a stabbing previously. These people are heroes, and I want to acknowledge that.

"These members of the public going about their day-to-day business have jumped into a situation which was extremely dangerous, extremely hostile, and they have brought a person - who we will be alleging stabbed an innocent person for no specific reason - into custody and allowed us to do our job," he said.
