Guns fired in street in Guildford

Five brothers have been charged over a gunfight between two groups of men in Guildford in July. 

Three men, 28, 21 and 19, were arrested at a Guildford property early Thursday and soon after a 34-year-old was arrested in South Granville.

They were charged with affray and concealing a serious indictable offence. 

A fifth man, 32, handed himself in to police and was charged with offences including shooting with intent to murder and possessing a loaded firearm in public.

Police said the shooting at Garnet Street on July 25 involved two groups who had argued on the street before shots were fired. 

Detective Inspector Neil Hallinan said police did not believe the shooting was debt-related and had no gang connections. 

"At 4.30pm we've got young children coming home from school and men firing guns in the street is ridiculous."

Stabbings in Granville

Three men were stabbed in Granville on Saturday. Police said a brawl broke out between two groups of men at the back of the station on Hassall Street about 7.30pm.

Two men, in their late teens and early 20s, were taken to hospital for treatment of multiple stab wounds. A third man attended Auburn hospital soon after with a stab wound.

Police want to determine if he was also involved in the brawl. The injuries were not life-threatening and police have urged any witnesses to the stabbings to come forward.

iPhone Grabbed

A woman, 30, was allegedly robbed as she talked on her mobile phone while walking in Westmead on Friday. 

Police said she was walking north on Hassall Street about 4.30pm and was holding her iPhone. A man approached her from behind and snatched the phone. He then ran onto nearby Mowle Street. 

The woman was not injured  during the robbery and described the man as in his 20s and about 172 centimetres tall. Police want to speak to anyone with any information about the incident. 

Off-duty cop nabs people

An off-duty police officer helped arrest two people wanted for fraud and identity crimes. The officer contacted uniformed police after seeing the wanted man and woman at a Parramatta hotel about 6.30pm on Thursday.

The woman, 29, was charged with six offences, including fraud and participating in a criminal group. The man, 35, was charged with fraud and participating in a criminal group. 

Earlier this year, police uncovered an alleged fraud syndicate involved in hacking, identity crime and money laundering.

Threatened a cop

A man will face court next year after allegedly threatening a police officer in a Pendle Hill car park. 

Police said they spoke to men who were socialising in a car park on Stapleton Street on Sunday night before they were called to the car park again about 2.30am. When the group was asked to move on due to noise, a man, 24, allegedly threatened a female officer. 

He was arrested and charged with intimidating a police officer on duty. He was released on bail and is due to appear at Fairfield Local Court on January15.
