Two women have been charged following a spate of incidents in Sydney’s north-west yesterday on Wednesday where a number of items were allegedly thrown from a car.
In one of the incidents, about 4.45pm, a 36-year-old woman was pushing a six-month-old girl in a pram and holding the hand of her four-year-old daughter, walking on Conrad Road at Kellyville Ridge.
A bottle was thrown at the group from a passing vehicle. The liquid in the bottle, which was believed to be bleach, splashed the four-year-old’s face and paramedics were called.
The girl was taken to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead for further checks and treatment.
In other, separate incidents around the same time, a woman walking along Conrad Road had a bottle of energy drink thrown towards her. On the Stanhope Parkway, between Hambledon Road and Wakeley Avenue, a woman riding a bike had a roll of garbage bags thrown at her.
Officers investigating yesterday’s incidents also discovered a bottle of bleach at another location on Conrad Road.
Shortly before 1pm yesterday, two women – a 20-year-old from Glenmore Park and a 22-year-old from Ingleburn – attended Quakers Hill Police Station where investigators also seized a 2009 model, red Hyundai Getz.
Both women were this evening charged with causing bodily injury by corrosive fluid, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and assault.
They were both granted conditional bail to appear at Blacktown Local Court on 12 June.
Inquiries into the incidents continue.
