Parramatta police/crime wrap-up

Two men were injured after a single-vehicle crash at Guildford on Sunday night.

Police said the Renault struck a bollard on a median strip on Military Road before it caught fire and was destroyed. Two men in the car were treated at the scene by paramedics and taken to Westmead Hospital. Their injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.

Inquiries into the cause of the crash continue.

Police pursuit

Cocaine, cash and mobile phones were seized after a police pursuit on Saturday.

Police attempted to stop a man driving a Volkswagen in Clyde. The pursuit ended on Parramatta Road in Granville, where the driver allegedly locked the doors and officers had to force entry.

The man, 25, was charged with supply of a prohibited drug, dealing with property suspected to be proceeds of crime, police pursuit and driving recklessly. 

Stolen goods

A Parramatta man, 44, was charged with three counts of goods in custody last Thursday.

It followed a public tip off that the man allegedly had stolen property at his home.

Police attended and located a number of stolen items, including a bike and weight training equipment.

Police assaulted

Two men aged 21 will appear in court for allegedly assaulting and hindering police on Friday night.

Police were patrolling the Parramatta CBD when they saw an intoxicated man step onto the road in front of them. Police spoke to the man, who refused to comply with police directions.

The man’s friend, who was also intoxicated, attempted to hinder the police from issuing directions before he assaulted an officer.

Man stabbed

A man has been charged following a stabbing at a Merrylands cafe on Saturday. 

A man, 36, was allegedly stabbed by another man, 27, who was known to him.

The older man sustained head, hand and chest injuries and was taken to hospital in a stable condition.

The younger man attended Merrylands Police Station a short time later, where he was charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

He was refused bail to appear in Campbelltown Local Court this week.
