A high-ranking member of an outlaw motorcycle gang has been charged after allegedly firing shots during a domestic violence-related incident in western Sydney yesterday.
About 5pm on Monday, March 1, a man attended a house on O’Connell Street, Caddens, declaring he wanted to see a younger man, who is known to him.
Fearing for his safety, the younger man has left the house through a rear door.
The man then forced his way through the front door, before going upstairs, where he found a woman and a four-year-old boy, both known to him, hiding in a bathroom.
The man made verbal threats before allegedly pointing a firearm at the woman. He then fired a round into the floor, before walking downstairs, where multiple rounds were fired.
The man then left the premises.
Following inquiries, officers attached to Nepean Police Area Command arrested a 53-year-old man at a house in Langmead Road, Silverdale, about 9.20pm.
The man, a high-ranking member of the Outlaws OMCG, was taken to Penrith Police Station and charged with ‘special aggravated break and enter’ and ‘commit serious indictable offence – weapon’, two counts of ‘stalk/intimidate intend fear physical etc harm (domestic)’, ‘use unregistered firearm – pistol’, ‘use unauthorised pistol’, ‘possess ammunition without holding licence/permit/authority’, and ‘fire firearm manner likely injure persons/property’.
He was refused bail and will appear at Penrith Local Court today on Tuesday, March 2.
