A man has been charged after several alleged car-jackings and crashes across Sydney’s south yesterday.

Just after 12.10pm (Sunday 26 March 2017), a 30-year-old man was picked up by a ride-sharing service on Archibald Avenue, Waterloo.

During the drive, it’s alleged the man began behaving erratically and became aggressive.

The driver, a 32-year-old man, stopped at the intersection of Canterbury and Canarys Roads, Roselands, and got out of the sedan.

The 30-year-old passenger moved into the driver’s street and allegedly drove away.

A short time later, it was involved in a crash with three other vehicles on King Georges Road, Roselands.

It’s alleged the man then drove the sedan to Moorefields Road where it was involved in a second crash, which resulted in both cars catching fire.

The man left the sedan and allegedly tried to car-jack another car driven by a 73-year-old woman on Moorefields Road; however, was unsuccessful.

It’s alleged the man then got into the backseat of a 4WD at the intersection of Moorefields and King Georges roads, and threatened the 54-year-old driver, forcing him to drive to the airport.

The vehicle arrived at the domestic airport, where the man was arrested by police.

He was taken to St George Hospital for treatment of lacerations and bruising, however, he was released today (Monday 27 March 2017) and taken to Campsie Police Station.

The man was charged with six offences including take and drive conveyance without consent of owner, negligent driving (x2), drive motor vehicle during disqualification period, assault with intent to take/drive motor vehicle, and take/detain person with intent to obtain advantage.

He was refused bail to appear in Sutherland Local Court tomorrow (Tuesday 28 March 2017).
