Police charge man after attempted robbery, car-jacking – Casula

A man will appear in court today charged over an alleged attempted robbery and car-jacking in Sydney’s south west last month.

About 1.30pm on Sunday 28 June 2020, a 26-year-old woman was walking to her vehicle in a car park on Parkers Farm Place, Casula, when she was approached by an unknown man.

Police will allege the man attempted to take the woman’s car keys and mobile phone from her hand unsuccessfully, before he ran away.

A short time later, a 57-year-old man was standing next to a Chrysler People Mover in a car park on Orange Grove Road, Liverpool, when the unknown man allegedly entered the driver’s seat.

At the time, three children – aged three and 21-month-old twins – were asleep in the vehicle in their car restraints.

It’s alleged the man reversed the Chrysler into an unattended parked car, before exiting and running away.

The 26-year-old man was detained by members of the public in the car park area before officers from Liverpool City Police Area Command attended.

He was arrested and taken to Liverpool Hospital.

About 12pm today (Thursday 9 July 2020), the man was released from hospital and taken to Liverpool Police Station where he was charged with enter inclosed land, attempted aggravated assault with intent to take/drive motor vehicle-inflict actual bodily harm, unlawfully take/drive motor vehicle with person in/on it, and never licensed person drive vehicle on road.

The Liverpool man was refused bail to appear at Liverpool Local Court today (Friday 10 July 2020).
