Police said a man walked into the centre at about 3.10pm before he returned 10 minutes later at 3.20pm and began stabbing people.

“It is clear that during that engagement he caused harm to those people, we believe, by stabbing them with a weapon he was carrying,” NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Tony Cooke said.

Police rushed to the scene after they received multiple calls from members of the public.

Video obtained by 9News appears to show a man wearing a rugby league jersey holding a knife as shoppers flee.
