Fairfield teenager charged with allegedly impersonating police

A teenage boy, arrested at an address in Fairfield on Tuesday, has been charged after allegedly impersonating police in Bidwill last month.

About 1.30am on Thursday, May 20, police have been told a silver coloured Holden Commodore activated red and blue flashing lights on Carlisle Avenue, and its occupants attempted to force a 20-year-old female motorist to stop her vehicle and place her hands on her head.

After realising the duo in the car were not police, the woman fled and allegedly pursued by the Holden to Woodstock Avenue, Mount Druitt.

About 20 minutes later, it's alleged the same Holden Commodore drove aggressively behind a 31-year-old man before activating red and blue flashing lights on Carlisle Avenue.

Police have been told that when the man stopped his vehicle, two males inside the Commodore with face coverings pulled up to his driver side window then produced a knife.

The man fled in his vehicle and allegedly pursued by the Commodore to Mimika Street at Whalan where both males exited their car brandishing a handgun and knife.

The duo fled when witnesses from nearby houses came to the man's aid.

Following inquiries, officers from Mt Druitt Police Area Command arrested a 17-year-old boy in Fairfield on Tuesday.

He was taken to Fairfield Police Station and charged with impersonating a police officer and exercising their powers, driving a motor vehicle while licence suspended and driving recklessly and furiously or speedmanner dangerous.

He was refused bail to appear at a Children's Court today.
