Armed men posing as police officers tried to pull over drivers

Police are hunting a group of men who allegedly posed as police officers and attempted to pull over innocent drivers in Sydney’s northwest overnight.

The group, who were travelling in a silver Holden Commodore, are accused of activating red and blue lights to try and trick a 20-year-old woman into pulling over.

The woman was driving along Carlisle Avenue at Bidwill around 1.30am this morning, when police say the Commodore drove aggressively behind her and told her to exit the car.


“The woman immediately drove away upon realising the men in the car were not police officers,” NSW Police said.

About 20 minutes later, the Commodore drove aggressively behind another car in Mt Druitt before again activating blue and red lights.

Police say the 31-year-old driver stopped his car and the Commodore pulled up directly next to him, however thankfully witnesses came out of a nearby house and the Commodore sped off.

“The driver noticed the occupants in the car wearing dark-coloured clothing with hooded jumpers and masks covering their faces,” NSW police said.

The back passenger of the Commodore was allegedly holding a knife, while another man in the car flashed a handgun.

Detectives are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
