Accused Sydney CBD stabber facing additional charges

The man charged over a knife rampage in Sydney two months ago has been slapped with fresh charges in court today.

21-year-old Mert Ney allegedly murdered a 24-year-old woman in a hotel room, before stabbing a 41-year-old woman on the street and taking off with a bloodied knife.

Members of the public restrained him with a milk crate, before emergency services arrived.

Ney appeared in court via videolink today, where he was charged with three new offences including possessing child abuse material, possession of a drug and being armed with a knife with intent to cause a serious offence.

Police will allege that child abuse material was carried on a USB found in the 21-year-old’s pocket at the time of his arrest.

He is already facing attempted murder, wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, intentionally choking a person with recklessness, and common assault charges.

In court today, bail was formally refused.
