Five Arrested In Counter-Terror Raids After Parramatta Shooting

Police have made five arrests in early morning raids on homes across Sydney’s western suburbs this morning, in relation to the shooting that took place on Friday outside Police Headquarters in Parramatta.
The raids were carried out at around 6am, at properties in Merrylands, Guildford, Wentworthville and Marsfield. Around 200 police were involved, and five males, aged 16, 18, 22, 22 and 24, were arrested.
The raids were part of a joint investigation by NSW Police, the Australian Federal Police and the Homicide Squad into the murder of Curis Cheng, the police accountant gunned down by 15-year-old Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar.

Last night, police raided the home of a teenager who made social media posts threatening police, and was arrested after an ‘incident’ with officers yesterday morning
Police searched his Guildford home for two hours before confiscating laptops and other items; he has since been charged with assaulting and intimidating police, resisting arrest, and using a carriage to menace, harass and offend.
UPDATE: AFP have stressed that today’s arrests are not related to the arrest of the young man in Parramatta yesterday.
