One of the injured has been identified as a 9-month-old infant who’s been forced to undergo surgery – identified as Ashlee Good’s daughter.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Good fought to save her daughter. She got stabbed and threw the baby to a man nearby to help her.

“The baby got stabbed and the mom got stabbed…the mum came over with the baby and threw it at me. I just helped by holding the baby and trying to compress the baby,” he said.

The suspect was shot dead at the scene by a lone police officer, later identified as Amy Scott.

The heroic officer was nearby when the attack unfolded and arrived on scene to engage the suspect.

Scott shot him when he raised a knife at her, according to NSW’s Assistant Commissioner Anthony Cooke.
