A man accused of directing a laser pointer at a police helicopter will appear in a Sydney court next month.

New South Wales police say that PolAir2 was conducting air patrols of Sydney’s south-west at about 8.30pm on Saturday (July 20) when a laser pointer was allegedly shone at the crew from Konrad Avenue at Greenacre.

The chopper crew alerted Bankstown Police who arrested a 36-year-old man after executing a search warrant at the address last night.

The man was taken to Bankstown Police Station and charged with doing an act to threaten the safety of an aircraft or person. He was granted conditional bail to appear before Bankstown Local Court on Wednesday, August 21.
