This is the nauseating moment when a messenger who went through Sydney made a selfie casually – moments after he had cut the throat of a sex worker.

Footage shows suspect Mert Ney yesterday just before 2 p.m. in an alley that seemed to hold a phone in front of him.

After apparently taking a selfie, he ran into the street before rushing through the city on a knife, & # 39; Allahu Akbar & # 39; screaming and a 41-year-old woman stuck in the back.

The 21-year-old was caught at camera moments after he allegedly killed 24-year-old sex worker Michaela Dunn in a nearby apartment. The images obtained by Channel Seven, also shows that Ney seemed to put on a balaclava as he ran out of the alley.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Dunn's mother, Joanne, has described her daughter as a & # 39; beautiful, loving woman & # 39; who has studied marketing at the University of Notre Dame and has traveled extensively.

The police believe that Mrs. Dunn was a sex worker and Ney, a recent convert to Islam, had been her client earlier in the day after she made an appointment to see her at 1:30 PM. The suspect, who has a history of mental illness, was seen on camera images leaving the building at 1.50 p.m. and the police say he killed her before he fled the block in a blood-soaked sweater.

Three British, including a Muay Thai champion, helped him tackle the ground in front of the terrified crowd in the Sydney business district.

He later turned out to have a thumb drive with details of mass victims of white supremacists in the United States and New Zealand. Although the incident is not treated as terrorist-related, the messenger was described by the police as a & lone actor & # 39; which may have a number of terrorist ideologies.

It comes as one of Ney & # 39; s sister apologized to the Dunn family and said: & i'm sorry a million times … i'm really sorry for the victim & # 39 ;.

The sister, who refused to give her name, said that Ney had a & # 39; steep descent into insanity & # 39; and that she wanted him to suffer & # 39; and was severely punished by the law for what he allegedly did.

& # 39; I want him to suffer. I just want them to place him in the worst psychiatric institution where it is like a prison, & she said.

The woman said she felt shocked, angry, disgusted – I hate my last name & # 39; in remarkably candid comments to the parental home in western Sydney.

& # 39; Above all, I just want to say sorry to the victims, & # 39; said the tearing sister. & # 39; She (the killed 24-year-old who was found dead in a unit) was like, younger than me.

& # 39; She could have gone out in a few hours to go shopping with her mother, dine with her boyfriend, her girlfriends and s *** s. She can't do that now, can she? & # 39;

& # 39; All the words I could say will never bring her back … I'm really sorry, she was so defenseless and so. & # 39;

She said Ney had to face the consequences of his alleged actions. & # 39; I want him to suffer, I want them to place him in the worst (most serious) mental health institution.

& # 39; But I know the law is mild or oh, he is mentally ill, we let him go. Then another woman dies. & # 39;

She added: & I don't want to get close to him. If this would be like family members, you know, wouldn't you want to get close to them? & # 39;

The sister praised the actions of the heroes, who quickly ended his alleged robbery with milk crates and chairs like & # 39; commendable & # 39 ;.

Her mother was so stressed out by the incident that she had to see doctors on Tuesday night and didn't eat, she said.

& # 39; I wish there was a way to make it better for her, & # 39; said the sister.

Ney & # 39; s distraught mother burst into tears when she was told that her son was arrested and even told the police that they had & # 39; the wrong man & # 39 ;.

Another sister, Yazel, has also revealed that she reported her brother to the police six days before the alleged disaster, claiming that he slapped her face and smothered her, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Police confirmed that they were looking for Ney last week in connection with the charge of domestic violence. Ney was also known to the police for a number of minor crimes and was brought to justice in June after being caught with weapons, including boxing braces.

Police discovered a knuckle and toy gun in the parental home of the Sydney CBD knife rampage that was accused several months ago after being called to his home to handle an incident.

Judicial documents said the NSW police were summoned to Ney's house on April 5 for a & # 39; unrelated case & # 39; which led him to be brought to Westmead Hospital for treatment & # 39 ;.

At home, officers & # 39; noticed a black metal knuckle & # 39; on a bookshelf in his room, as well as parts of a green and black toy Glock & # 39; scattered & # 39; on a different shelf, a factsheet said.

British, including a Thai boxing champion, are praised as heroes after chasing Knifeman and pinning him with a MILK Crate

Three Brits, including one who is a Muay Thai boxing champion, have been praised by the police as & # 39; heroes & # 39; after they helped hold the mesman.

Lee Cuthbert, Paul O & # 39; Shaughnessy and Luke O & # 39; Shaughnessy, all from Manchester, were working in the area when they heard the man try to put different people out.

They described the moment they held the suspect probably up to & # 39; instinct & # 39 ;, with dramatic eyewitness images that seem to show that a young man with chairs and a milk crate is being secured to the floor.

Paul O & # 39; Shaughnessy, 37, a former midfielder with Bury between 1999 and 2004, told reporters: & # 39; He was wearing a balaclava, he had a knife with blood on it.

& # 39; And we thought: & # 39; Wow, what's the matter here? & # 39;

Images showed that the attacker was pinned to the ground by bystanders of the hero carrying milk crates. The police then flew and arrested

& # 39; We went down the escalator and continued to chase the man where other people were going because he was clearly using a knife.

& # 39; I don't know if it was an instinct or not, but we were right, we should try to keep this guy from doing more.

& # 39; My brother and I just came across here, these guys followed and we got a grip on him and another man.

& # 39; We caught him and withheld him completely and then waited for the police to arrive. He has blood all over him. & # 39;

Brother Luke, 30, a Muay Thai boxer champion, told PA: & I just wanted to make sure he couldn't hurt anyone else.

& # 39; We've talked about what we would do if we hear these things happen all over the world.

& # 39; We are the kind of guys who ask questions later and act on instinct. If it happened again, I would do it again and act faster. & # 39;

The pair, which runs digital talent agency MAP Talent, were at their office in York Street when the drama took place at 3:15 pm local time (6:15 am & # 39; morning).

Luke said they talked about the danger they ran into when they jumped in the elevator to help.

& # 39; I heard a huge commotion outside, & # 39; he said to PA.

Paul O & # 39; Shaughnessy, 37, a former midfielder with Bury between 1999 and 2004 (shown in his match days), told reporters: & # 39; He was wearing a balaclava, he was wearing a knife with blood on it

& # 39; I screamed & # 39; Paul, let's go, there's a man with a knife & # 39 ;. When we got into the elevator, I said: & seriously, it's covered in blood & # 39 ;.

& # 39; We entered King Street and ran all the way from there trying to chase him.

& # 39; Finally we caught up with him and I just stopped him and pinned him.

& # 39; He had a knife. It was covered with blood next to him. & # 39;

Other passers-by also stopped to help, including two firefighters.

The brothers said they were holding the attacker until the police arrived at the scene.

Paul, a father of two who has lived in Sydney for 11 years, said he thought it was his way to give back to a country that had welcomed him with open arms.

& # 39; I will consider that today I have given back something by doing what is right and that the British can do Britain proudly by coming to another country and doing what they can to help & # 39 ;, he said

New South Wales Police Superintendent Gavin Wood, in conversation with reporters near the stage, said: & # 39; A number of members of the audience have actually physically stopped the perpetrator.

& # 39; And I want to recognize those people, those citizens who got involved. They are brave and I can only use that word seriously.

& # 39; They are considerably brave people. They approach the person … with clear evidence of a stabbing earlier. These people are heroes and I want to acknowledge that.

& # 39; These civilians who have taken their day-to-day affairs into a situation that was extremely dangerous and extremely hostile, and have brought in a person – of whom we are allegedly accusing an innocent person for no specific reason – detention and have enabled us to do our work. & # 39;

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison praised the bystanders for their intervention.

He posted on Twitter: & # 39; The violent attack that took place in Sydney this afternoon is very worrying.

& # 39; The attacker is now in police custody after the brave actions of those who were present on site and could stop him.

& # 39; The motivation for this attack has not yet been determined because the police are continuing their investigation.

& # 39; Our thoughts are with all those affected by this violent attack. & # 39;

Ney later admitted that he owned the knuckleduster and said he bought it on the internet a few years ago & # 39; and & # 39; never removed it from the property & # 39 ;.

He was accused of owning a forbidden weapon and pleaded guilty to the accusation after he was not represented at the Blacktown Local Court.

Ney was sentenced to a nine-month conditional order that prohibited him from committing offenses.

The sister said that extremist material reportedly found on a USB stick on Ney & # 39; s person, & # 39; news for me & # 39; used to be.

She said it looked like he was using & # 39; religion as an excuse & # 39; and that her family was not Muslim.

& # 39; I saw a lot of news about terrorism and such, & # 39; she said. & # 39; My family does not practice Islam. I know that I have a dark skin and look like I'm from the Middle East, that will be an obvious thing.

& # 39; But it is clear that I am not Muslim, no matter how dressed I am. My mother is not Muslim, my sister is not Muslim, my father is probably just an atheist. We have absolutely nothing to do with Islam. & # 39;

She said her brother might be & # 39; Allahu Akbar & # 39; had shouted to scare people and that she was alienated from him.

& # 39; It's scary to hear … It can be a tactic I think that's it. & # 39;

The family feared that last week he was a & # 39; threat to himself & # 39; was and confirmed that he had disappeared from a psychiatric ward of the hospital last week. The police confirmed that he was subsequently reported missing.

The sister said she was & # 39; so shocked & # 39; was when she discovered what was happening.

& # 39; I came back from the city. I heard nothing about it until people said hey, watch the news. I still can't believe it's him. & # 39;

She said the family never thought he was violent, but he was known to be mentally ill.

She burst into tears after talking to reporters and said she never thought he was capable of what he would have done.

& # 39; We didn't know he would do this … he has never been violent in the past. & # 39;

It comes when more details emerged about the alleged victim of Ney, Michaela Dunn.

Photos shared on social media showed Ms. Dunn through Sri Lanka and the US last year, as well as previously on vacation in Europe.

The police said that while the body had not yet been formally identified, it was assumed that it was Mrs. Dunn.

& # 39; Although her family appreciates the support of the community, they have asked for privacy in this difficult time & # 39 ;, read a statement from the police.

& # 39; The investigation into the circumstances surrounding the Michaela murder is led by investigators from the Murder Team under Strike Force Lalchere. & # 39;

Detectives go through the couple's phones to determine the nature of the relationship with Ney.

The victim had a personal mention on Locanto under the heading & # 39; men looking for women & # 39 ;, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Police commissioner Mick Fuller said that Ney had visited the woman for & # 39; business purposes & # 39 ;.

& # 39; It looks like he (Ney) was there for a business purpose, & # 39; he said.

Mrs. Dunn was recalled by Joan Westenberg as & # 39; incredible & # 39 ;, who said she first met Dunn when she was a 14-year-old & # 39; child & # 39; was in high school. Mrs. Westenbeg had six years with Mrs. Dunn's sister.

& # 39; Mikki was like my little sister. I can't describe how sad and broken I am right now & # 39 ;, she wrote on social media. & # 39; I loved this boy. She was incredible. & # 39;

& # 39; I am angry that male violence has taken another victim. Selfish I am so angry that the victim is a young woman whom I deeply respected and cared about. Mikki was a true pleasure to know. & # 39;

Mrs. Westenberg also said that Mrs. Dunn deserved to be safe while she was working, and added that & # 39; sex work is work & # 39 ;.

The dead woman's neighbors said they were shocked by the horrible murder and said they had heard nothing.

Sindy Tang, who lives on level three of the Clarence Street building, was working during the trial and returned home Tuesday evening to find the police around the building.

She told Daily Mail Australia that she was worried at first when she saw the news, but she doesn't feel unsafe in the building.

SISTER OF CRACKED SYDNEY KNIFEMAN WAS & # 39; COOKED AND SPUNED DAYS FOR RAMPAGE & # 39 ;:

A sister of the man accused of violently walking through the center of Sydney claims that she was smothered and beaten by her brother a few days before the alleged attack.

The city was put into chaos on Tuesday afternoon when Mert Ney, 21, rushed through the center of the city with a large kitchen knife.

One woman was found with her throat cut in a nearby unit and another was found in the back of a pub with a stab wound to her back.

Ney, 21, grew up in a brick house (photo) in Marayong, near Blacktown, the middle brother of two brothers and sisters and the son of Turkish Cypriot parents

Ney was detained at around 2 p.m. when heroic bystanders arrested civilians and the police soon arrived.

His sister Yazel told it The Daily Telegraph she informed the police of her brother six days earlier after allegedly slapping her face and suffocating.

& # 39; He ran to me, hit and choked me, I couldn't breathe. & # 39;

The police have previously confirmed that they were looking for Ney last week in connection with a domestic violence issue.

Yazel said she was disgusted by the alleged behavior of her brother and called him a & # 39; monster & # 39 ;.

She claimed that her brother had been fighting depression and schizophrenia for a number of years, but she could not determine where the problem started.

& # 39; It's kind of scary because you move into the city and think you're nice and safe and close to work … I think everything can happen anywhere. & # 39;

She said she did not know the killed woman and was unaware of any form of sex trade in the apartment next door.

She said it was mainly office workers and families who came in and out of the building. Another neighbor, Ketki Gupta, said she was still struggling to understand what had happened.

& # 39; I am absolutely shocked, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; I have lived here for three years and there has never been anything like it. & # 39;

Ketki said the apartments were beautiful inside and that most of her neighbors were quiet. She said she had not met the neighbor and did not know her name.

The woman said she came home around 1:30 pm on Tuesday afternoon for lunch.

During this time she said she heard nothing from the next door, and had no idea of ​​the chaos that would unfold.

Pedestrians were seen running in a panic as the bloody blades burst through the street and & # 39; Allahu Akbar & # 39; cried.

Ney was finally detained at around 2 p.m. when heroic workers from nearby offices committed an arrest of civilians and the police soon arrived.

He was taken to the hospital under police surveillance and had to be charged.

He has been described as a & # 39; silent loner & # 39; who spent the whole day on the computer & # 39 ;, where the people of West Sydney confessed that they had never expected such violence.

HOW THE SYDNEY HOLDS IN:

* 2 pm: police receive calls about a man armed with a knife and a balaclava walking down York Street in the CBD of Sydney.

* Officers arrive to find a 41-year-old woman who sustains a stab wound in the Hotel CBD on the corner of King and York Streets.

* Shortly thereafter, three members of the public detain Mert Ney, 21, before being arrested by the police.

* 15.15 hrs: the body of a 24-year-old woman was found in a Clarence Street unit.

* The police investigate whether the body is related to the previous stitches.

* 5.30 pm: NSW police commissioner Mick Fuller confirms that the two crimes are interrelated and reveals that Ney has a history of mental health problems.

* Police say the Marayong man has no ties with terrorist organizations, but does have some & # 39; ideologies regarding terrorism & # 39 ;.

* Ney reportedly had material with him & # 39; about other crimes of mass casualties and mass deaths around the world & # 39 ;, says the commissioner.

* Detectives thoroughly search Ney's house in western Sydney

* The police reveal that Ney had agreed with the sex worker on Tuesday at 1.30 p.m. CCTV footage shows that Ney is leaving the apartment at 1.50 p.m.

Police commissioner Mick Fuller revealed today that he had been reported missing before Tuesday's dramatic disaster in Clarence Street.

It was later announced that he had stayed in half a house in Blacktown, in the west of Sydney, the night before the alleged attack.

Courtney Ridgeway, 19, and Nathan Tgiy, 16, told Nine news they met Ney on Monday evening and described him as & # 39; agitated & # 39; and & # 39; scary & # 39 ;.

The two said they were in the room next to him and heard him talk about terrorism.

Ney is currently under police surveillance at the hospital, but is expected to be accused of attempted murder and assault if he is considered medically fit to talk to the police.

Police said Ney had a USB stick with him & # 39; who suggested that he had some ideologies related to terrorism & # 39; and refers to the Christchurch mosque attacks and mass shootings in the US.

Commissioner Fuller said that investigators would review his Facebook history and search chat rooms to see if there is any evidence related to terrorism.

The police have not ruled out possible terrorist charges, he said.

He said there was nothing worldwide that could link him to terrorism, but they haven't interviewed him yet.

& # 39; I mean, just storing some footage on a USB drive is not enough for me to say that this is a terrorist incident.

Police said Ney had previously been involved in a number of minor crimes, but nothing comparable to these allegations.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Ney had a magistrate dismissed a gun charge in June.

He was caught with knuckles, but was taken away without conviction under section 10 in Blacktown Local Court.

Police went to Ney's house in Marayong after a report on & # 39; welfare concerns & # 39; and found the knuckles.

He pleaded guilty for having the weapon and was sentenced to conditional release, while no conviction was noted.

The conditions include that he sought help for his mental health.

Weeks later, on August 7, Ney arrived in the emergency department of Blacktown Hospital after an overdose of drugs.

He was last seen the next day at 6.40 am from an ambulance and the police were notified.

Medication was also found near the place where he was arrested – and was identified as a drug used to fight anti-anxiety, called antinex, Channel Seven reported.

EXCLUSIVE: The cheeky-grinning schoolboy who became a bloody mesman: how the Sydney attacker was an image of innocence – before he & # 39; cut down the throat of a sex worker & # 39; and caused six minutes of chaos

He looks like every other teenager, cheeky – and a bit awkward – for a photo for his school yearbook.

But Mert Ney, now 21 years old, would cause unprecedented chaos in the Sydney CBD years after alleged murder of a sex worker and the stabbing of another woman during a six-minute disaster that sent shock waves around Australia.

Ney was arrested on Tuesday at about 2 p.m. after being traced by heroic bystanders who used chairs and milk crates to pin him down on Wynyard Street in the heart of the city.

The bloody knife maker was seen earlier on the corner of King and Clarence Street, handled a large knife and called for someone to shoot him.

Those scenes were far removed from a school photo taken of him in year 8 and the teenager smiled in his uniform at Blacktown Boys High School.

Ney grew up in a brick house in Marayong, near Blacktown in western Sydney, the middle of three siblings and the son of Turkish Cypriot parents.

& # 39; He was not like this & # 39; n talker, & # 39; said Reen Elomari, who went to primary school with Marayong Public with Ney.

Another man who went to high school with Ney told Daily Mail Australia that his former classmate had recently converted to Islam and posted about his new religion on social media.

Police said Ney had a USB stick with him & # 39; who suggested that he had some ideologies related to terrorism & # 39; and refers to the Christchurch mosque attacks and mass shootings in the US.

& # 39; He always ran fast, not many friends, never said anything.

& # 39; I always saw him walking the streets alone. I would see him around my house. I might see him a few times (only in Westpoint stores) & # 39 ;.

One of his sisters was supposed to play hot potato in the front yard of one of Elomari's relatives, but the shy boy refused to join in and stood there with his arms crossed.

& # 39; He would say & # 39; time to go home & # 39 ;, she remembered.

But she and family said they would never have anticipated the violence and were stunned when Facebook started to scam with reports about the identity of the accused clerk.

Another neighbor, Jenny Threadgold, said he was supposed to have mental health problems and reports have claimed that he had disappeared from a treatment facility in recent days.

Friends who went to school with Ney claim that he had recently converted to Islam and a & # 39; strange person & # 39; used to be.

A man in the same class as Ney in high school said he was shocked by reports that he was behind the attacks.

& # 39; I always thought he was a little weird and he always posted (on Facebook) about conversion (to Islam) and things like that, & # 39; said the man who wanted to remain anonymous.

& # 39; (But) I didn't expect him to go that far. & # 39;

Ney & # 39; s Facebook page has since been removed, but another school friend claims to have spoken to him last week and said he was planning to attend a music festival.

& # 39; He just had an atmosphere, he was just a strange person – he didn't have many friends, & # 39; he said.

Ney is expected to be charged at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital on Wednesday.

Those charges are not yet known as NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said they had found information about the man, including a USB stick, suggesting that he had some ideologies related to terrorism.

The thumb drive refers to massive shootings in New Zealand and the US – including the Christchurch terror attack of March, police said.

He said investigators would review his Facebook history and search chat rooms to see if there is any evidence related to terrorism.

The police have not ruled out possible terrorist charges, he said.

He said there was nothing worldwide that could link him to terrorism, but they haven't interviewed him yet.

Police said Ney had previously been pinged for a number of minor crimes, but nothing comparable to these allegations.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Ney had a magistrate dismissed a gun charge in June.

He was caught with knuckles, but was taken away without conviction under section 10 in Blacktown Local Court.

Police went to Ney's house in Marayong after a report on & # 39; welfare concerns & # 39; and found the knuckles.

He pleaded guilty for having the weapon and was sentenced to conditional release, while no conviction was noted. The conditions include that he sought help for his mental health.

Weeks later, on August 7, Ney arrived in the emergency department of Blacktown Hospital after an overdose of drugs.

He was last seen the next day at 6.40 am from an ambulance and the police were notified.

The police were looking for Ney last week in connection with a domestic violence issue allegedly involving his sister.

Medication was also found near the place where he was arrested – and was identified as a drug used to fight anti-anxiety, called antinex, Channel Seven reported.
