Building manager stabbed to death in brazen daylight attack

A major manhunt is underway after an apartment building manager was stabbed to death at a unit block in Sydney this morning.

The brazen daylight attack happened around 8.00am on Thursday, at the Mirage apartment block on Bunn Street in Pyrmont.

“Police have been told that the man had been involved in an altercation with a man known to him prior to being stabbed,” NSW police said.


The victim, a 44-year-old man, was found with multiple stab wounds in a lift at the property and despite desperate attempts by paramedics, he died at the scene.

A man, believed to be a security guard at the apartment block, is now on the run and was last seen leaving the building in a vehicle described as being a 2006 model white Holden Viva with NSW registration AM-23-CQ.

“If you do see this car, please ring Triple-0 or Crime Stoppers, do not approach the man,” Acting Superintendent Sean Heaney told reporters.

“The car is very important, the person driving that car is the man we want to speak to.”

The man is described as being of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern appearance, aged 35-40, of medium to large build with dark hair. He was wearing a blue suit at the time.

Anyone who sees the man is urged not to approach him but to instead call Triple Zero (000) immediately.

A crime scene has been established which is continuing to be examined by specialist forensic police.
