A teenage boy has been charged after allegedly impersonating police in Sydney’s west last month.
About 1.30am Thursday 20 May (2021), police have been told a silver coloured Holden Commodore activated red and blue flashing lights on Carlisle Avenue, Bidwill, and its occupants attempted to force a 20-year-old female motorist to stop her vehicle and place her hands on her head.
After realising the duo in the car were not police the woman fled; allegedly pursued by the Holden to Woodstock Avenue, Mt Druitt.
About 20 minutes later, it’s alleged the same Holden Commodore drove aggressively behind a 31-year-old man before activating red and blue flashing lights on Carlisle Avenue.
Police have been told that when the man stopped his vehicle, two males inside the Commodore with face coverings pulled up to his driver side window then produced a knife.
The man fled in his vehicle; allegedly pursued by the Commodore to Mimika Street at Whalan where both males exited their car brandishing a handgun and knife.
The duo fled when witnesses from nearby houses came to the man’s aid.
Following inquiries, officers from Mt Druitt Police Area Command arrested a 17-year-old boy at an address in Fairfield yesterday.
He was taken to Fairfield Police Station and charged with impersonate police officer and exercise powers and functions, drive motor vehicle while licence suspended, and drive recklessly and furiously or speedmanner dangerous.
He was refused bail to appear at a Children’s Court today (Thursday June 17 2021).
