A witness who wished to remain anonymous was on his way to work when he saw that various police were attacking the man.
& # 39; The train guard said the guns were making a sound that sounded like a taser going off & he said to Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; I saw police officers come in and tackle him and then he sat with all the police on the seats.
& # 39; The police did not touch the gun until they took pictures of it and then they broke it apart. & # 39;
A spokeswoman for the New South Wales Police told Daily Mail Australia that the police initially arrested the man for security reasons before discovering that the gun was fake.
The spokeswoman said the toy gun was purchased innocently from Paddy's Markets, and it is not yet known whether he will receive an infringement report.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Sydney Trains for comments.
