A man has been charged following a pursuit through Sydney’s north west overnight.

Checks of the vehicle revealed it had allegedly been stolen from a home on Toorah Street, Londonderry, earlier that night and police attempted to stop the Isuzu at the intersection of Cox and Bell streets.

Police will allege the Isuzu then reversed into the unmarked vehicle twice before fleeing the scene.

A pursuit commenced, however was terminated a short time later, before a separate unmarked Hawkesbury Highway Patrol vehicle resumed the pursuit on Richmond Road, Bligh Park.

The pursuit continued to the Windsor Downs area before it was terminated due to the dangerous manner of driving.

Pol Air commenced monitoring the Isuzu as it continued to the Baulkham Hills area, where road spikes were successfully deployed by police on Seven Hills Road, about 12.40am (Sunday 26 December 2021).

The driver – a 20-year-old man – allegedly fled the scene on foot before officers, with the assistance of the Dog Unit, arrested him at the rear of a home on Barraba Place, Bella Vista.

He was taken to Parramatta Police Station.

During a search of the Isuzu, police seized cash, knives and identification cards believed to be stolen.

Following inquiries, the Kings Park man was charged with take and drive conveyance without consent of owner, three counts of police pursuit – not stop – drive dangerously, negligent driving (no death or grievous bodily harm), possess prohibited drug and goods in personal custody suspected being stolen (not motor vehicle).

The man was refused bail to appear at Parramatta Local Court today (Sunday 26 December 2021).
