Police say they saw the 30-year-old man get into a stolen Peugeot on Lackey St, Summer Hill, about 1pm on Sunday. When they followed him, police allege the man rammed two stationary cars at the intersection of Norton and Holden streets. It is also alleged that he drove at a police officer who approached him, forcing him to jump out of the way. He then drove to Norton and Milton streets, before running from the car. When police arrested him a short dis- tance away, he had a number of stolen items in his possession, they say. The man was charged with a number of offences including stealing a motor vehicle, driving in a dangerous manner, using an offensive weapon to prevent lawful deten- tion and two counts of goods in custody. He was refused bail and was due to appear at Burwood Court on Monday. 2 AN Ashfield man has died after being swept off rocks at North Bondi on Saturday morning. The man, believed to be in his late 20s, was hit by a wave while fishing from rocks at Ben Buckler Point. At the time police were already in the area, searching for another fisherman who had been swept from the rocks the previous day. They responded immediately to the incident, lowering a Polair officer into the water to help. The pair were picked up by a Marine Area Command Vessel. Police performed CPR on the fisherman en route to Watsons Bay wharf, where the boat was met by NSW Ambulance personnel and a rescue chopper, however the man died a short time later. A report will be prepared for the coroner. The other fisherman is still missing, presumed drowned. 3 POLICE investigating a serious assault in the city issued a search warrant at an Abbotsford address on Wednesday.

He was taken to St Vincent's Hospital suffering a serious head injury, where he is now in intensive care. At 2pm on Wednesday, police issued a search warrant at an Abbotsford address and seized a number of items including clothing.
