Man Kicks Dog, Threatens Staff In Bizarre Hour-Long Crime Spree
A man has been charged with a string of offences including kicking a dog inside a pet store following an hour-long crime spree in Sydney.
The man refused a lawyer in Paramatta Bail court on Sunday, instead choosing to represent himself applying for bail.
But he became aggressive throughout the hearing, yelling and swearing at the Magistrate.
"You're to blame, it's your fault," he told the court.
"Why don't you go f**k yourself you f**kwit."
Police were first called to a fast food restaurant in Waterloo about 5pm on Saturday where a man allegedly threw two drinks at a customer before stealing food from behind the counter.
He then ran from the store.
Minutes later, a man allegedly threw a bag of dog food at a female staff member inside a pet store on the same street.
Police were told he then allegedly threatened two customers and kicked one of their dogs in the ribs, before again fleeing the scene.
The man then allegedly damaged a car and assaulted another man with a tree branch on Brennan Street in Alexandria.
Fire crews were later called to nearby Henderson Road where a motorbike had been set alight. The fire destroyed the motorbike and a nearby parked car.
Police arrested a 37-year-old man from Cammeray in Eveleigh just before 6pm and charged him with 11 offences, including three counts of assault and animal cruelty.
The magistrate said he "put the community at great risk" and denied him bail.
