Man attacks police at Annangrove home

A man will face court after he allegedly punched a police officer in the face.

Following an inquiry, officers from Operation Talon visited a home on Annangrove Road, Annangrove yesterday afternoon (Monday, November 13). 

A man, 39, walked to the front gate of the property and allegedly punched a police officer in the face, causing two chipped teeth and swelling.

It’s alleged the man set his two dogs on two officers as they attempted to arrest him.

The dogs retreated and the man managed to dodge police and run back inside.

Officers from South West Metropolitan Region Enforcement Squad, Operation Talon, Strike Force Raptor, The Hills and Ku-ring-gai commands were called in for support.

The man gave himself up to police outside his home at about 9pm.

Castle Hill police charged him with assault police officer in the execution of his duties, resist or hinder police, threaten injury to person with intent to prevent lawful detention and intimidate police officer in execution of duty. 

He was also charged with set on, urge dog to attack, bite and escape police custody.

The man was refused bail and was due to appear in Parramatta Local Court today (November 14).
