Speaking on Sunrise this morning, John Bamford pronounced he had lunch during a cafeteria before walking past a circuitously pub where someone told him what was going on.
“I had to do something about it,” he said. “There was no choice.”
He pronounced a purported knifeman pronounced he had a explosve in his bag, yet that didn’t shock him.
“I wasn’t unequivocally frightened,” he said. “I didn’t know what was going on.
“When something like this happens on your doorstep out of nowhere, we have no choice. You have to do something about it. That is only a approach it is.”
Dubbed “Chair Man”, Mr Bamford was praised a favourite by police, along with large others who dramatically calm 20-year-old Mert Ney after his purported stabbing frenzy on Tuesday afternoon.
Nearby bureau workers pronounced Mr Bamford was behind during work yesterday going about his business.
“He was unequivocally brave,” one lady told news.com.au.
The chair Mr Bamford used has given been labelled “famous” and returned to a cafeteria home.
Mr Bamford is among a final of a heroes to be identified after NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller pronounced they didn’t wish to skip any chairman who might have “acted courageously” during a apprehension.
Traffic controller Steven Georgiadas estimates there were adult to 15 people concerned in a chase.
A favourite himself, Mr Georgiadas initial attempted to pile-up tackle Mert Ney before station on a “massive” blade allegedly used to gash Linda Bo, 41, lady in a behind during Hotel CBD and cut a throat of Michaela Dunn, 24, in a Clarence Street in a CBD on Tuesday afternoon.
“I listened some screaming and cheering entrance from (Wynyard Park),” he told news.com.au.
“It was really, unequivocally shrill — ‘Stop him, get out of a way’ — with a whole smoke-stack of organisation chasing him.
“I responded unequivocally fast since I’ve had a identical occurrence before.”

Mr Georgiadas pronounced he’d formerly had to pile-up tackle a pirate using from some circuitously stores.
“I was prepared to pile-up tackle him yet as I’ve got adult to him we saw he had this large blade forked down towards a ground,” he said.
“As shortly as we saw a blade we changed to a side so we could pile-up tackle him laterally so he wouldn’t gash me.
“By that time someone had strike him from behind with a chair. It all happened so quickly.
“He stumbled and a knife, appreciate God, fell out of his hand. The initial thing we did was mount on a knife, duration a others were right on his heels.”
The organisation of organisation enclosed internal bureau workers and firefighters who chased a 21-year-old down carrying anything they could find — bluster bars, awes and cafeteria chairs, finally pinning him down with a divert crate.
But Mr Georgiadas pronounced he didn’t have a arms to arm himself with.
“I was going to stop him,” he said.
“My instinct kicked in. we didn’t know what he’d done, we suspicion maybe he attacked somebody.
“I suspicion they were going to kill him. we got scared. we was screaming during a tip of my voice for them to stop kicking him.
“I had zero when we approached him. we saw a blade and we knew how to hoop a conditions since a blade was too high to flog so we had to tackle him. we roughly had him so appreciate a duke he stumbled and seconds after he got strike in a back.”
The male with a chair is a bank workman in a CBD while Alex Roberts, Lee Cuthbert and Paul O’Shaughnessy ran from a circuitously office.
“There were a lot of heroes,” Mr Georgiadas said.
“A lot of them chased him though a arms on them. We’re all heroes, we all responded we consider in a drastic matter.
“I would have got him, I’m revelation you. we played a bit of rugby when we was immature and even yet I’m scarcely 68, we would have got him.”
Paul O’Shaughnessy, 37, told The Australian it was an “ordinary day” in a bureau until he looked out a window and saw Ney on a travel next with a blade in his hand.
He alerted his hermit Luke, 30, yet by then, a male had fled so they followed a route of blood until they found him.
“You could see drips, — a blood was on a ground,” he told The Australian. “Like drips so we could see it, see where’s he’s gone.”
“My brother, he was a hero. He got a hold of him, along with another male we don’t know, and put a bin on his head. He was only mumbling eremite things,” he said.
The organisation were praised as “heroes of a top order” for their purpose in pinning him down before anyone else was stabbed.
They gave a shoutout to a other bystanders, like a male with a chair, who also confronted a purported attacker.
“The guys that followed him by a streets with several weapons and all sorts of things, they’re a heroes,” Lee told Today this morning. “There was dual gentlemen who got to him first, and they were a genuine heroes.”
Police this morning suggested some-more sum about Ney’s haphazard rampage.
Commissioner Fuller pronounced Ney went on to a travel to “kill some-more people”.
However, he pronounced Ney’s rapist story was “not remarkable”.
“He has some low-level issues around theft, antagonistic damage,” he said.
“He had some domestic assault issues related behind to his family, that again, were not poignant or critical injuries.
“However, they were being investigated. But if we demeanour during his spreadsheet from a rapist story perspective, it stays unremarkable.”
He combined that Ney was listed by his family as a blank person.
