In what has been dubbed the largest police crackdown on crime across Sydney’s public transport network since stay-at-home orders were lifted, 103 people have been arrested by officers from the Police Transport Command.

Operation Colossus targeted violence, anti-social behavior, and the possession of weapons on various forms of public transport

Officers from the Police Transport Command North-West led the high-visibility operation which spanned over two days, Friday (6 May 2022) and Saturday (7 May 2022).

The operation which was aimed at commuter safety was undertaken with the assistance of local police area commands and specialist commands, the Dog Unit, and PolAir.

Direct reporting from NSW police outlined the following cumulative results:

‘About 10:40 pm on Saturday 7 May 2022, police were patrolling Lidcombe Train Station when they attempted to stop a 19-year-old man; however, he allegedly ran from police before being arrested in nearby Joseph Street. When police searched the area, identification and bank cards belonging to numerous people were recovered. The man was taken to Auburn Police Station where he was charged with five counts of goods in personal custody suspected of being stolen. Two outstanding arrest warrants were also executed, and the man was also charged with two counts of larceny, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm. He was refused bail and appeared at Parramatta Local Court yesterday (Sunday 8 May 2022).’

‘Just after 1pm on Friday 6 May 2022, a 74-year-old woman was allegedly hit in the face with a mobile phone at Central Train Station, and a 58-year-old man and a 64-year-old woman were allegedly punched in the face in separate incidents in nearby public toilets. When Operation Colossus officers attended and arrested a 44-year-old woman over the incidents, she allegedly assaulted a male constable. The woman was taken to Day Street Police Station, where she was charged with three counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and assault police. She was refused bail and appeared at Parramatta Local Court on Saturday (7 May 2022). The men and women suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene.’

Over the two-day operation, 103 people were arrested for 119 charges.

A total of 382 person searches were undertaken.

289 move-on directions were issued, and there were 21 breach-of-bail offences detected.

There were 57 drug detections, and five people were charged for possessing a knife in a public place.
