A father who stabbed his teenage daughter in the neck before jumping to his death inside a shopping centre had been struggling to make his daughter conform to his traditional ways, family friends claim.

The 52-year-old man plunged to his death inside Chatswood Chase shopping centre, on Sydney's north shore, just after 10am on Sunday.

A short time earlier, police said he stabbed his 14-year-old daughter multiple times in the neck inside their family home.

Witnesses said the teen ran across the road to a busy park where she screamed: 'Help me, he's trying to kill me'.

Friends of the family told Daily Mail Australia there had been ongoing tensions between the girl and her parents.
