A police officer has been stabbed in the hand with a screwdriver after chasing down a stolen Maserati in Sydney’s southwest.
The incident began on Thursday when police saw the car, which was stolen from West Pennant Hills two days earlier, in Macquarie Fields.
They followed the car and signalled for it to pull over but it didn’t stop and a chase ensued.
The Maserati reached a dead end on Wedderburn Road and rammed the police car before the three occupants fled on foot.
A 25-year-old man was pursued into nearby bushland where he allegedly stabbed a constable in the hand with a screwdriver before being arrested.
He was later charged with car theft, wounding, assaulting police and possessed a prohibited drug and refused bail appear at Campbelltown Local Court on Friday.
Police are still trying to find the driver of the car and the other passenger.
