A police officer was injured yesterday during the arrest of a man over an alleged detainment at Chester Hill.
He had to be taken to Liverpool hospital for surgery.
About 2am on Thursday, November 7, Bankstown police officers were called to a property at Chester Hill, following reports a woman, 25, was being held against her will.
On arrival, a man, 29, allegedly charged at officers and struggled as they tried to arrest him.
It's alleged a male constable suffered a deep cut to his right forearm when he was pushed into a porcelain sink, causing it to break.
The injured officer along with a female leading senior constable then chased the man and there was a brief struggle resulting in the man's eventual arrest.
He was taken to Bankstown police station where he was charged with seven offences, including:
- recklessly wounding a police officer doing his duty and causing physical harm;
- assaulting a police officer doing his duty and causing physical harm;
- resisting a police officer doing his duty (x 2);
- taking a person and intending to commit a serious indictable offence;
- assault causing physical harm; and
- choking a person.
He was refused bail to be in Bankstown court yesterday.
The constable was taken to Liverpool hospital in a stable condition for surgery.
