(Nine) VIEWS: 0 | FLOCKS: 0 | 0 comments so far A man has been arrested after allegedly targeting a police helicopter with a laser pointer. The Polair crew were hit with the green laser light at 10.15pm (AEST) Saturday as they conducted routine patrols of the Colyton area, in western Sydney. A 29-year-old man was arrested at a unit block on Carpenter St, Colyton, after the helicopter crew were able to pinpoint the source of the laser. Police seized a green laser pointer from the unit. The man has been interviewed by Penrith police, but has been released pending further investigations. He has yet to be charged. The laser attack follows another incident in south-west Sydney on Thursday night, when an 18-year-old man was arrested for shining a laser light at officers driving on Carlton Avenue in Chipping Norton.
