NSW police arrest three after pursuit

Three teenagers have been arrested following a pursuit with police in Sydney’s south west this morning.

About 3am (Wednesday 23 November 2022), four people allegedly forced entry to a home on Montefiore Avenue, West Hoxton, and stole an Audi Q7.

The stolen Audi parked on Brooklime Street, Denham Court, about 4.40am, and four passengers – armed with a machete, a knife, and a firearm – got out and approached a nearby home, waking the occupants.

A firearm was allegedly pointed at an occupant through a window before the group fled in the stolen Audi.

A similar incident also allegedly occurred a short time later at a home on Wollahan Avenue, Denham Court, where the group left the scene in the same vehicle.

About 5am a 22-year-old woman was reversing her VW Golf out the driveway of a home on Macksville Street, Hoxton Park, when two men – one allegedly armed with a firearm and the other with a knife – threatened her. The woman exited the vehicle where the men drove the vehicle from the scene followed by the Audi.

The woman was not injured.

Officers patrolling Hoxton Park sighted the Audi travelling on Hoxton Park Road just after 8am.

A pursuit was initiated after the Audi failed to stop.

It will be further alleged that at the intersection of North Liverpool Road and Meadows Road, Heckenberg, the Audi reversed into the front of a fully marked police vehicle causing minor injuries to a male sergeant.

The Audi drove east along North Liverpool Road where the pursuit was terminated for safety reasons.

Police located the vehicle abandoned at the intersection of Sims Place and Bowtell Avenue, St Johns Park.

Following a search with the assistance of the PolAir and the Dog Unit, three teens – aged 17, 14, and 13 – were arrested at Chisholm Park.

They were taken to Liverpool Police Station and are currently assisting with inquiries.

The Golf remains outstanding.

As inquires continue police are appealing for anyone with information, or any available dashcam/mobile phone footage, about the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
