A MAN has been charged with a raft of offences, including stalking or intimating, common assault, larceny and resisting police, after he allegedly broke down the front door of a home in Revesby about 4pm on Friday.
After allegedly forcing entry, the 48-year-old Revesby man threatened the occupants of the home, before chasing them outside. He assaulted one of the occupants in the process.
When police found the man at Revesby Railway Station, he became violent and allegedly kicked an officer.
Driving dangerously and drunk
A MAN has been charged with high-range drink-driving after being detained by an off-duty officer on the second day of Operation Drink Drive II.
Operation Drink Drive II is a high-visibility state-wide traffic operation that targets dangerous driver behaviours including drink-driving, drug-driving and speeding.
About 3.30pm last Saturday, an off-duty police officer was travelling on Fairford Road at Bankstown when he noticed a Mitsubishi Lancer allegedly driving in a dangerous manner.
The officer instructed the man to pull over and both vehicles stopped at a nearby service station.
A member of the public assisted the officer in detaining the man while police were contacted.
Officers from Bankstown Local Area Command attended and arrested the 28-year-old man after he returned a positive roadside breath test.
The man's arrest was one of 56 drink-driving charges that were laid on day two of the operation, after 63,236 breath tests were conducted state-wide. This result is 43 less than the same period last year.
Robbers wore Halloween outift
INVESTIGATIONS are underway following an aggravated break-in at Belmore last Tuesday.
Police were told four masked men in Halloween costumes broke into a home on Oxford Street just after 10pm.
One of the men was armed with what appeared to be a firearm, while a second man had a metal pole.
The men threatened and tied up the four occupants of the home, a man and a woman and two teenage girls, before stealing property.
Once they left, the occupants were able to untie themselves and call police.
Gang stole boy's phone, wallet
POLICE are investigating after a teenage boy was robbed at Sefton on Saturday afternoon.
Just before 5.30pm, two boys aged 13 and 14, got off a train at the railway station and as they passed a group of six youths, the group made comments toward them before some from the group began chasing them.
The pair became separated, with the younger boy stopping in a laneway behind Helen Street to ask an unknown man for protection.
The older boy was confronted by three people from the group on Helen Street. They demanded his property and made off with his jumper, phone, wallet, and a video game he had just purchased.
Neither child was injured in the incident.
Two members of the group have been described as being of Caucasian appearance, with the other four being described as being of African appearance.
Drug, stolen goods, fake name
A MAN has been charged with possessing a prohibited drug after police noticed him acting suspiciously in a pub car park about 8.30pm on Thursday.
Police followed the 39-year-old man from Warwick Farm to one of the hotel's rooms. When the man opened the hotel room door, police could smell a strong scent, believed to be cannabis. He was arrested and searched.
During the search, police found what is alleged to be a prohibited substance.
Beside the drug offences, he was charged with resisting arrest, giving a false name and address and having goods in custody suspected being stolen.
