A man allegedly went on a rampage on King St between Clarence St and York St.

Uber Driver Leon tells Steve Price the man jumped over the bonnet of his car near the Grace Hotel.

“He did have a knife in his hand… he had a little bit of blood on his shirt.

“Everyone was just running away from where the fire brigade truck was and the next thing I saw this guy jumping over the car.

“Definitely on something… he didn’t sound normal, obviously he wasn’t acting normal.”
