A man has been charged after allegedly leading police on a five hour chase on the New South Wales Central Coast, with a two-year-old boy in his vehicle.

They located a person they wanted to speak to on Golf Link Drive, Watanobbi.

He sped off in a truck so Officers gave chase.  But the pursuit was called off when Officers realised there was a child in the truck with him.

Polair was called in to track the 40-year-old’s movements and he was eventually stopped at Yagoona in Sydney.

The man was taken to Bankstown Police Station, where he was charged with two outstanding warrants for assault and firearm offences, three counts of use offensive weapon to prevent lawful detention, police pursuit (not stop/drive recklessly), use unregistered vehicle, drive vehicle while licence suspended, two counts of not give particulars to other driver, two counts of destroy or damage property, and drive with child not restrained.

He was refused bail to appear at Bankstown Local Court on Friday.
