Wanted for child sex offences, Newman, 33, reportedly failed to appear in court two days ago. 
Newman was wanted for six counts of rape, one count of intentionally choking and one count of aggravated sexual assault against a person under 16, the Daily Telegraph reported. 
The child sex offender stabbed the senior detective when the 45-year-old and his partner from the sex crime unit stormed the hotel to arrest Newman.
The 33-year-old reportedly began arguing with the detectives before he attacked with a knife, where the 45-year-old's officer shot Newman. 
Dramatic video shot by a witness at the scene showed officers with guns draw at a back entrance to the pub, before entering in combat stance. 
The officer was seen arriving at the hospital surrounded by concerned colleagues while paramedics worked on him.
The attacker was shot dead by officers on the scene with witnesses saying they heard four or five shots.
Two 18-year-old boys who heard the commotion told Daily Mail Australia it was 'pretty scary'.
'Our friends were inside and we heard the shots so we hurried to see what was going on. There was blood everywhere,' Mackenzie Gibbs said.

Another man was seen being marched away from the pub by police but it was not clear why he was arrested. 
At least 20 police officers locked down the area, putting up tape and telling nearby businesses to close.
Sales assistant Lara Alexander was working at the nearby Pharmacy 4 Less when she heard 'four or five' gunshots.
'I was vacuuming here at work and I heard gunshots from a couple of doors away. About four or five,' she told Daily Mail Australia.

'I heard what could have been a muffled gunshot but didn't think anything of it until I went down stairs and there were police everywhere.'
The Scot stays in Maroubra for six months every year and is saddened by the incident.
