“A crime scene was established and officers attached to Eastern Suburbs Police Area Command commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident,” the police said.

“Following inquiries, a 43-year-old man was arrested at Riverwood about 1.20pm the same day.

“He was taken to Campsie Police Station and charged.”

The alleged knife violence came just one day before Queensland man Joel Cauchi, 40, rampaged through the Westfied shopping centre in Bondi, murdering six people. He was fatally shot by police.

NCA NewsWire does not suggest the two incidents are related.
