The Bourke Street attack in Melbourne CBD shocked the nation as we saw two men injured and one man killed.
However, footage was captured of the brave bystanders who rushed into the crime scene to help subdue the knife-wielding attacker.
One man, in particular, has been praised for helping the police to slow the man down with a common shopping item.
This man has been hailed as ‘trolley man’ and Twitter users were quick to express their gratitude to the daring bystander.
However, whilst the police were grateful for their help, they warned the public to be more careful in such situations where it can be very dangerous to interfere.
