Man, 28, ‘tries to STAB two cops’ outside Sydney police station

A knifeman allegedly attacked two cops outside a police station in the early hours of this morning. 

The male and female officers were walking towards north Sydney’s Eastwood Police Station at 3am when the man approached from behind.  

As the officer turned around, the 28-year-old man allegedly produced a 20cm knife and lunged towards him.

The Leading Senior Constable blocked the man’s arm before he swung the knife a second and third time at his head before running away.

Officers gave chase towards Ethel Lane, where one officer fired his Taser at the man without effect.

After a short pursuit the man, still armed with the knife, stopped and turned to face the officers.

Another officer then fired his Taser which caused him to fall to the ground.

Officers arrested the man and secured the knife. He was taken to Eastwood Police Station where inquiries into the incident are continuing.

The officer involved was not physically injured during the incident.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page.
