A man has been arrested and charged after storming a home in Glendale yesterday and allegedly threatening the occupants at knife-point before punching one of them through a window in yet another terrifying case of domestic violence.

The frightening scenes played out inside a house on Michele Crescent at around midday yesterday.


Police say two men, aged 43 and 19, and a woman also aged 19, were home at the time when a 45-year-old man known to them allegedly forced his way inside.

It’s further alleged that while inside the home, the intruder allegedly picked up a knife and threatened the 43-year-old before punching him through a window and running from the scene.

Police have confirmed the incident is domestic violence related.

Officers spoke to the occupants of the home and conducted a search of the scene during which it’s alleged they found a firearm barrel, two replica pistols and ammunition supposedly owned by the intruder.

Around three hours later, police located the 45-year-old walking along Glendale Drive.

He was arrested and taken to Belmont Police Station where he has since been charged with nine offences, including;

  • Armed with intent,
  • Intimidation,
  • Common assault,
  • Possess prohibited weapon without permit,
  • Possess ammunition and,
  • Assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

He was refused bail to appear in Newcastle Local Court today.

I feel sorry 4 this bloke ,as he did not have any weapons when police found him on the street,he is only charged with all those offences due 2 the peoples in the house saying he owned the items the police found in the house.again the police don’t do there job properly and find out the true cause of what went down in the fisrt place; if this man gets a good lawyer ,he will get all charges dismissed in court.due 2 the police not doing there highly paided tax payers job lazily&slopperly
