Man Allegedly Pulled out Gun on NSW Train


A 35-year-old man has been charged after allegedly pulling out a pistol on a train heading west from inner Sydney.

The accused and a 55-year-old man boarded the train at Redfern on a Sunday morning in mid-July and sat near each other, NSW Police said on Tuesday, Sept. 3.

The two men did not know each other.

Detectives allege the young man then began yelling and swearing at other commuters and pointed the gun at the older man.

The older man then tackled to the ground the younger man, who then moved to another carriage.

The younger man was later stopped by police at Granville Station and released before he was arrested on Monday at a Redfern home.

He allegedly threw away the gun before speaking with officers at Granville.

The 35-year-old was charged with affray, possessing an unregistered firearm and arming with intent to commit an indictable offence, and refused bail to appear at Central Local Court on Sept. 3.
