Sydney stabbing victim identified as 24-year-old Michaela Dunn

The woman killed in a knife attack in central Sydney on Tuesday has been named as 24-year-old Michaela Dunn.

Michaela Dunn was found dead inside an apartment after a 20-year-old man was detained by the public and then arrested for allegedly stabbing another woman in the street.

The former student was reported to have been working as a sex worker at the time of the attack.

Initial police inquiries suggested that a man had entered the apartment for “an appointment” at about 13:30 and was captured on CCTV leaving the building about 20 minutes later.

The man Mert Ney, was arrested shortly after 14:00 after a 41-year-old woman was stabbed in the street.

Homicide squad detectives are investigating both stabbings.

Her mother remembered her on Wednesday as a “beautiful, loving woman”.

Dunn was also remembered by Sydney’s Rosebank College, which she attended before studying at the University of Notre Dame.

“The college remembers Michaela as a highly successful and much valued student. She was seen as a mature, resilient young woman and a positive role model,” principal Tom Galea told The Sydney Morning Herald.
