'Knifeman', 32, accused of slashing a police officer charged with attacking two prison guards

A man accused of slashing a police officer across the head with a knife in Sydney’s CBD has now also been charged with assaulting two prison guards, days after his lawyer told a NSW court he had been ‘subject to violence’ behind bars.

Police say Fredrick Elrezz became physically aggressive towards two NSW Corrective Services officers, about 9.30am last Thursday, before biting one on the hand and spitting on the other.

The 32-year-old has been charged with three new offences including assaulting a law enforcement officer and inflicting actual bodily harm.

Elrezz was last week accused of assaulting three policemen on York Street on Wednesday after he was said to have harassed a food delivery driver.

The Lakemba man’s lawyer, Oussama Elfawal, last Friday told magistrate Robert Williams at Central Local Court his client was having a ‘difficult time’ in custody.

‘He has been subject to violence from the guards because of the allegations made against him,’ Mr Elfawal told the court.

Elrezz was taken to hospital for assessment after the slashing incident, while authorities also seized several items from a York Street hostel.
