A massive police standoff has led to cops storming a home in south-west Sydney where a man and woman have been arrested.
Shortly after 11am officers from Bankstown Police Area Command attended a home on Yanderra Street, Condell Park to speak to a man wanted on an outstanding warrant.
While on scene one man and two women – who recently arrived at the home – were arrested.
A 28-year old woman was treated on scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Bankstown Police Station where she is now assisting police.
The other woman and man were released a short time later.
Another man – who was inside the home at the time – refused to exit the house.
Police established a border around the home calling in resources from the Tactical Operations Unit, Police Negotiators, and Public Order and Riot Squad to assist with negotiations.
Around 2pm, a handler and dog from the Dog Unit entered the dwelling where a 26-year-old man was arrested.
He was taken to Bankstown Hospital in a stable condition for treatment of a dog bite.
Transport routes were diverted around the area while the operation was ongoing.
Transport for NSW bus services said route 925 buses are ‘diverting away from Edgar St at Eldridge Rd due to a police operation. Buses are using Chapel Rd and Milperra Rd instead and are not going to Condell Park. 20 stops being missed.’
Inquiries into the incident continue.
