Aussie man steals bulldozer to crush cars and home

SYDNEY (Web Desk) – A man who allegedly used a stolen bulldozer to crush three vehicles and a house in Australia’s New South Wales has been arrested, say police.

The 48-year-old was expected to be charged later over the incident in Teralba, outside of Newcastle.

A woman and her two daughters who were inside the house at the time escaped moments before it was knocked down, the BBC reported.

The man’s motive is not clear, but police said he was known to the occupants of the house.

The bulldozer was allegedly stolen earlier from a nearby mine.


Police said that early on Monday morning the man drove the bulldozer to the suburban house, crushing three cars parked in front of it.

He first headed towards a detached garage on the property, said police, which was housing a 29-year-old man.


The driver briefly pursued the man, before turning towards the house and flattening it.

A neighbour ran over and helped a 56-year-old woman and her two daughters, aged 15 and 20, from their home shortly before the building was knocked down.

Police were called to the scene around 07:30 (20:00 BST on Sunday).

An officer stopped the bulldozer by jumping into the cab and pressing the emergency stop button, while the driver was still in the cab.

The man is being questioned at Charlestown police station. No-one was injured in the incident.

He was expected to be charged with attempted murder, the Newcastle Herald reports.
