Man charged after alleged road traffic incident involving metal post

A man has been charged after allegedly smashing a car window with a metal bar and hitting a passenger in the head during a brutal road accident in south-west Sydney.

Kurt Marshall, 30, is on trial Wednesday after allegedly stopping his Subaru Forester in front of a Toyota RAV4 at the intersection of Saltash Street and Hume Highway in Yagoona.

Marshall then reportedly got out of his car, smashed the Toyota’s passenger side window with a metal bar, and demanded money from a 66-year-old passenger. He then hit the passenger on the head.

A member of the public alerted police to the incident around 11:20 a.m. Tuesday.

The 66-year-old man was taken to Bankstown Hospital and treated for his head injury.

When officers arrived, Marshall allegedly fled in his car. The police launched a pursuit before ending the pursuit almost immediately for security reasons.

The Subaru was found by police in the driveway of a house on Locker Avenue in Lurnea, south-west Sydney. Marshall was arrested and taken to Bankstown Police Station.

He was charged with assaulting a person with intent to commit a serious criminal offense, being armed with intent to commit a criminal offense, inciting a police pursuit, reckless driving and during the confinement period having driven a motor vehicle on the road.

He was refused bail and will appear at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.
