Police charge Sydney man for tasering officer during arrest bid

SYDNEY: Sydney police has charged a man for tasering an office to escape arrest.

The officer was allegedly tasered during an arrest on Friday afternoon at Yennora train station, in Sydney’s west.

Footage of the incident has emerged, wherein the man can be seen grabbing the taser from the officer in front of stunned onlookers on the platform.

Police said the taser was activated four times prior to police being able to disarm the man. A scuffle ensued and one of the officers struck the man as the other had him in a headlock.

Police said “baton strikes” were used during the struggle.

Later, multiple officers arrived at the train station and led the man away.

According to police, they were arresting the man on the platform for breach of a court order.

They originally stopped the man, and a 31-year-old Waterloo woman he was with, as both did not have a valid train ticket.

Police last night charged the 50-year-old man with assaulting a police officer in the execution of duty, using a weapon to prevent lawful detention and resisting or hindering a police officer in the execution of duty.

He has been refused bail and will appear at Parramatta Bail Court today.
