A man will appear in court today charged over an alleged break-in as part of ongoing investigations into a man’s death in Sydney’s south west.
Just before 9.40pm on Friday (24 May 2019), emergency services were called to Chester Road, Ingleburn, after reports of a brawl involving a large group of people.
The brawl is believed to have begun during a party at a home on Chester Road, before it spilled onto the street.
Upon the arrival of officers from Campbelltown City Police Area Command the crowds began to disperse.
An 18-year-old man was located on the roadway with serious head injuries.
He was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics, who conveyed him to Liverpool Hospital, where he was declared deceased.
Local police were assisted by the Public Order and Riot Squad, the Dog Unit, Police Rescue, Police Transport Command, and officers from other South West Metropolitan Region Police Area Commands.
Several crime scenes were established as inquiries into the man’s death continue.
A number of weapons, including a baseball bat and golf club, along with wooden and metal poles were seized for forensic examination.
Four men – all aged 19 – were arrested and were taken to Campbelltown Police Station.
One of the men has been charged with destroy or damage property, and enter prescribed premises of any person without lawful excuse.
Police will allege in court that the man ran from police and forced entry to a unit on Chester Road, Ingleburn, before he was arrested nearby.
The Cabramatta man has been refused bail to appear at Parramatta Bail Court today (Sunday 26 May 2019).
The three other men have been released pending further inquiries.
Officers from Campbelltown City Police Area Command and the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad continue with their inquiries and are appealing for anyone with information or footage of the incident to come forward.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence.
