Man accused of assaulting his ex and attempting to kidnap her and baby son

Man ‘hit his ex repeatedly in the face, head and body’ before attempting to kidnap her and baby son

  •  Man, 36, will appear in court today charged with kidnapping and assault 
  • He hit the woman repeatedly in the face before forcing her into a car 
  • He was arrested last night to appear in Bankstown Local Court on Monday

 A 36-year-old Sydney man is accused of bashing his former partner before kidnapping her and her baby in Sydney’s southwest.

Police say the man and a 28-year-old woman were at a home in Greenacre on Sunday morning when they began arguing.

Police say the man hit the woman repeatedly on her face, head and body and when she tried to leave with her eight-month-old son, he forced them into his car.

The woman unsuccessfully tried to escape from the car twice – calling out to passers-by for help – before being forced back into the car. She was then driven to her home in Sadleir before the man left.
