Raptor officers have charged a high-ranking member of an
Outlaw Motorcycle Gang following investigations into an
alleged road-rage incident at Kingswood in February.
Police charged a 26-year-old man on Friday 15 April, 2011 following investigations into the offence. The man is allegedly a high-ranking member of the Nomads OMCG.
He was charged with affray, armed with intent to commit indictable offence, use intimidation/ violence to unlawfully influence, and destroy or damage property.
He will remain in custody to appear at Penrith Local Court on 27 May 2011.
The charges relate to an alleged road-rage incident that occurred on 7 February this year in which a near-crash occurred between a vehicle on the Northern Road at Kingswood which was being driven by a 37-year-old man, and a vehicle containing two men including the 26-year-old.
The 26-year-old then allegedly overtook the other car, striking the 37-year-old’s vehicle with a crow bar. The 26-year-old man and his driver, who were both armed with weapons, then exited the car and allegedly threatened the 37-year-old man before he fled the scene in his vehicle.
Strike Force Lonach comprises officers from the Gangs Squad and Strike Force Raptor and was established to investigate the several incidents.
