The police officer fiancé of a young woman who was killed in the stabbing rampage at Bondi Junction rushed to the shopping centre to help his colleagues, only to discover his wife-to-be was one of the victims. 

Dawn Singleton, 25 - who is the daughter of multi-millionaire advertising guru John Singleton - was due to marry her high school sweetheart, NSW Police Officer Ashley Wildey, in coming months. 

Ms Singleton's life was tragically cut short, along with five other shoppers, when she was stabbed at Bondi Junction Westfield by Joel Cauchi, 40, on Saturday afternoon, while shopping for her wedding.

'She'd just gone in to buy makeup at Chanel, she was only there for 15 minutes, looking at makeup for her wedding,' a friend told the Daily Telegraph.

Mr Wildey, who was reportedly on call, scrambled to the shopping centre to assist police colleagues with the unfolding situation.

'He had arrived at Westfield when officers realised his fiancée was one of the victims,' a source told The Daily Telegraph.

Mr Wildey was then allowed to leave the scene to be comforted by family and friends, as is procedure.
