EMERGENCY services were called to Omnibus Road in Kingsgrove about 3am on Sunday, where they found a man with multiple stab wounds. It's believed the 21-year-old was stabbed outside the home before the offender fled the scene. He was in a serious condition. Campsie police established a crime scene and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
Assault officer arrest
A MAN who called police to assist in help him retrieve property from an address in Hinemoa Street, Panania, over the weekend has himself ended up behind bars. Police arrived at the Panania property about midday on Saturday to find the 19-year-old man from Hammondville, argumentative. He allegedly became aggressive after police said they had no powers to enter the premises and he would require a recovery court order. The man attempted to enter the property and was intercepted by police. On a second attempt, he was arrested. He was charged with resisting arrest, using offensive language and assaulting a police officer.
Hunt for wanted man
POLICE are appealing for assistance from the community to locate Bilal El Hassan, aged 36, who is wanted on two arrest warrants and a revocation of parole warrant.
The arrest warrants relate to a kidnapping at Glendenning on Sunday, August 20, which is being investigated by the State Crime Command's Firearm Squad; and a fail to stop crash at Revesby on Thursday, May 25, which is being investigated by Bankstown police. El Hassan is described as being of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern appearance, 180-185cm tall, with a muscular build. He was last known to have short brown hair and a beard, but may have changed his appearance. He was previously known to frequent Bankstown and police are seeking information. If sighted, don't approach; instead, call triple zero immediately.
Carrying axe in plaza
A MAN carrying an axe through Old Town Plaza, Bankstown, last Wednesday, caused alarm among early morning shoppers. About 7.30am the Birrong man was observed taking an axe from his bag and walk towards Bankstown Railway Station. He returned to Old Town Plaza a short time later still holding the axe, before sitting down at a table. Police searched the man finding the axe and allegedly a number of credit cards not belonging to him. The 30-year-old man was charged with carrying an offensive implement in a public place and goods in personal custody suspected of being stolen. Police say he will be dealt with under the mental health act.
Stomped on, robbed
TWO Bankstown residents have been charged after a violent robbery at a Central Coast bottle shop in July.
A Noraville man, 23, was assaulted and robbed after returning to his vehicle from a bottle shop. He had previously had an argument with the two Bankstown residents. The Bankstown men, 23 and 17, allegedly approached the car and demanded money. The older man demanded the driver get out of the car, while the 17-year-old allegedly took alcohol and clothing from the vehicle.
The driver ran into the bottle shop where he was allegedly punched and where one of the men stomped on his head, causing a loss of consciousness.
Last Thursday the two Bankstown men were identified. They have both been charged with robbery in company. The younger man was also charged with aggravated robbery with wounding and grievous bodily harm.
