Police said they found the body of a man inside the shopping centre. Another man was arrested and taken to Parramatta police station where he is assisting with inquiries.
Shopping centre employees said they heard two women screaming: “He’s killing him! He’s killing him!”
Myer employee Bianca Zoratto-Ivanov said a friend of hers saw the stabbing close to the entrance of the store’s cosmetic section.
“He heard a scream, like a man yell,” she said. “He heard it again and then he heard two young women scream: ‘He’s killing him! He’s killing him.’
“That’s when he turned around and saw the incident was taking place. He saw the man facing the store and doing the stabbing motions.”
Ms Zoratto-Ivanov said she knew the employee at Aquila Shoes who hadseen the offender drive a machete into the victim.
