The young boy was forced to watch his father violently rampage through his pop’s house.
Concerned the child’s father was armed with a gun, officers withdrew and established a perimeter around the home.
Police said the man’s six-year-old son walked out of the house a short time later.
It’s alleged the 41-year-old continued to damage the inside of his father’s house before surrendering to police.
During a subsequent search of the house, police allegedly found an unregistered firearm and ammunition.
The 41-year-old was arrested and taken to Windsor Police Station where he was charged overnight with using a weapon to avoid apprehension, assault police, breach AVO and malicious damage.
The man was refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court today.
His six-year-old son is now being cared for by relatives.
Investigations are continuing.
