A man has been charged over allegedly spitting on two police officers following an arrest for domestic violence-related offences in Cranebrook.

About 5.15pm yesterday, officers from Nepean Police Area Command – assisted by the Public Order and Riot Squad, and the Dog Unit – attended a home in Beacroft Place, Cranebrook, as part of investigations into an alleged domestic-related incident the day earlier.

The occupant, a 24-year-old man, allegedly ran onto the roof of the property and commenced jumping on the roofs of nearby houses.

“Police will allege in court that the man picked up tiles on the roof and threw them at responding officers,” a Police spokesperson said.

“A short time later, the man came down and was arrested before he was taken to Penrith Police Station.

“It will further be alleged that, as the man was being taken into the police station, he spat in the face of a senior constable and a constable.”

The man was charged with 11 offences.

Police will also allege in court that the man was involved in a police pursuit in South Windsor on Tuesday, April 21.

The Cranebrook man was refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court today.
