A man will appear in court tomorrow after Police Transport Command officers charged him with several offences including carrying a firearm onto a train in Sydney today.

About midday today (Wednesday 21 March 2018), a male commuter on a southbound train travelled between Waverton and Wynyard Railway Station.

During an interaction with another passenger, the man allegedly lifted his shirt and showed a handgun at his waist.

The passenger then moved away from the man and contacted police on his mobile phone.

Police have been told the man attempted to get away but was followed through as many as six carriages.

Upon the trains arrival at Town Hall Railway Station the man was identified and arrested at gun point by officers attached to the Police Transport & Public Safety Command.

During a search of the man officers located a silver handgun with a brown hand grip.

It was determined on closer inspection that the item was a cap gun.

The 42-year-old man was conveyed to Day Street Police Station.

He was later charged with intimidation, wilfully interfere with comfort and safety of passenger and possession of unauthorised pistol.

The man was refused bail to appear at Central Local Court tomorrow (Thursday 22 March 2018).

What a fool. Apart from scaring the crap out of other passengers, what if this “gifted fool” had drawn said cap gun and pointed it at the officers. The what if would probably have been that at least one 9mm round would have been sent his way and in all reality have put him in a body bag. Police shouldn’t have to deal with this stupidity and be forced to make split second decisions that could end up costing the offender his life

A man remains under police guard in hospital after he allegedly assaulted a police dog and his handler during an arrest in Lorne yesterday.

Police attended a home on Lorne Road, about 47km from Port Macquarie, about 5pm (Tuesday 20 March 2018), after reports of a domestic assault.

Upon arrival, the man fled into nearby bushland.

Police commenced a search of the area with the assistance of the Dog Unit, and found a 41-year-old man.

Upon sighting police, the man allegedly attacked the dog and his handler; the man suffered an injury to his arm during the arrest.

Officers rendered first aid to the man until NSW Ambulance paramedics arrived and took him to Port Macquarie Base Hospital.

Police Dog GOV and his handler, a Senior Constable, were not injured.

The injured man remains under police guard at hospital.

Police believe the man and woman were known to each other.

Hope Gov sank the fang in.

Why can't people just keep their hands off each other. (And dogs)

What a coward to attack a dog. Hope the Police dog took a chunk out of him first. Glad both are safe.

Jem Brown fool

Oh!! Poor doggy

Gov showed the POS who's boss

Well done Gov. hope you and your handler are ok.

I don't care one little bit about the POS, but very pleased the Police Dog and handler are okay.

Good on you Gov. I hope you licked him really hard.😂

Good boy Gov. I love u K9s

Ha... What a fool! You don’t mess with the dog unit, good dog Gov👍🏼

Thank you to Gov and his handler.

Shame it wasn't his testicles, but then, even a police dog would be unable to find something that obviously doesn't exist.

Glad officer and canine are OK. Honestly, how far do these fools think they are going to get, taking on an angry pup and a Constable with a gun. Absolute galahs!

Hope gov isn’t offended by being referred to as dog unit ..

Good dog Gov....good dog!

I hope the dog didn't catch a disease.

Should let the dog rip his throat out


Good job Gov 👍👍👏👏

Kim Marsh Jenkins Leeah Brown Lucy Draper not the doggo

How does one assault a police dog? You'd have to have lightning reflexes to get a kick or punch in before Officer Gov got you

So pleased PD Gov that you and your Senior Constable are OK. thank you and all concerned for assisting in keeping us safe from Grubs.

Thank goodness the two police officers are ok.👍💙💙

Perching on poles, archways, statues and doorways, find your favourite and share them with us on #cityartsyd

This could be made into a tourist map for kids, so they can find all 60 birds, like a treasure hunt!

Instead of spending a million dollars on this rubbish could you please address the core responsibilities of local government. I’ve reported the constant dumping of rubbish on Ashmore St in Erskineville by email and by phone and the problem remains....I’ve even been told by one of your staff ‘Well if it doesn’t fit in the bin the drivers will just leave it there so you have to pick it up yourself or speak to your neighbours’ Quite unbelievable.

How much did this cost and was the cost covered by philanthropic groups or City of Sydney ratepayers?

Clover wastes more money on shit can this thing be stopped????

Trucks of Maddox Street. I reckon the cost of 10 birds would have fixed our Maddox St problem. Lord Mayor Clover Moore clearly doesn’t think we have enough pigeons in the city. Excellent allocation of resources!

Dacia George Shirleen Corina will have to check it out

Extremely underwhelming, and quite irrelevant. Anything wrong with doing something “creative’ and giving the $912k to an Australian artist?

I don’t know how many people would noticed these things. I think the real birds would be more noticeable than these.

What a waste of money feed the homeless

Love them. Nice idea🦉

Dont we have enough of real birds

Can't wait to go and try to find them all!

Absolutely beautiful


It’s a genuine question City of Sydney?

Erin Boyd let’s go find them


Are the birds gay? ..because Clover sits on floats to get the gay vote. The residents in Alexandria should know by now that Clover has always put birds and trees before ratepayers.
