Police officer stabbed with screwdriver in vehicle chase
A police officer has been injured during a pursuit of a stolen Maserati in Sydney’s south-west today.
Officers detected a Maserati, that had been reported stolen from West Pennant Hills, travelling south along Evelyn Street, Macquarie Fields.
Police initiated a pursuit and when the vehicle reached a dead end it allegedly struck a marked police car, before the three occupants exited the car and fled the scene on foot.
A 25-year-old passenger fled into nearby bushland where he allegedly stabbed a senior constable in the hand with a screwdriver.
He was charged and refused bail to appear at Campbelltown Local Court tomorrow.
The driver and a second passenger is yet to be found.
