A man will face court today after allegedly trying to set alight The Entrance Police Station yesterday.

It’s alleged about 12pm yesterday, a 25-year-old man walked towards the police station with a wine bottle filled with petrol.

The man was seen pouring the liquid around the front entrance of the police station and attempting to set it alight with a cigarette lighter.

Officers chased the man and used OC spray to detain him after he allegedly refused to drop the lighter.

He was subsequently charged with being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence and resisting an officer in the execution of duty.

The man was refused bail to appear before Wyong Local Court today.
