Man wanted on outstanding warrants arrested in Strathfield

Officers from the Police Transport Command have arrested and charged a man wanted by virtue of outstanding warrants, NSW Police say.

Just before 7.30pm yesterday today, officers attached to Police Transport Command were conducting routine checks at Strathfield Railway Station.

Officers approached a man and began talking to him. The man indicated he did not have a valid ticket and allegedly provided fake details to police.

The 49-year-old man was subsequently searched and allegedly found to be in possession of a number of stolen items.

He was arrested and taken to Burwood Police Station.

Following inquiries police identified the man was linked to a number of assaults that occurred in the Hornsby and Sutherland areas.

That includes an incident on Wednesday 22 June 2016 where a 25-year-old man who had allegedly been kidnapped from Hornsby and stabbed escaped from a vehicle in Zetland.

The man was charged with assault causing actual bodily harm in company, armed with intent to commit indictable offence, wound with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and detain in company with intent to gain advantage.

He was refused bail to appear at Burwood Local Court today tomorrow.
