A man has been charged after he allegedly intimidated and harassed people at Bondi Beach, before entering the water and evaded police for two hours.

Police were involved in a bizarre arrest after a man waded into the ocean off Bondi Beach.

Officers were involved in a two-hour stand-off before he was eventually apprehended in the water by two men and brought to shore.

It is alleged the Woollahra man, 38, had been intimidating beachgoers.

About 2.30pm on Thursday, Eastern Suburbs Police officers were called to Bondi Beach following reports a man had been approaching multiple women and allegedly acting in a harassing and sexually-inappropriate way towards them.

When police approached the man to speak with him, he entered the water, where he stayed for two hours.


Bondi Lifeguards, an off-duty officer, Pol Air and Water Police worked together to apprehend the man in the water on the southern side of Bondi Beach.

A video posted to Facebook shows the 38-year-old sitting on a rock on the southern side of the beach about 50 metres from the shore.

A jetski drops off two men nearby. They grab the man and escort him to the beach.

The men are seen struggling on the rocks as they bring the man to shore.


He is then handcuffed by officers who walk him up the beach.

He was charged with resist or hinder police officer in the execution of duty, and stalk and intimidate or intend to fear.

He was granted conditional bail and will appear and Waverley Local Court on March 3.

    • That's when I met Snake. I was assigned to jury duty for his case.

      To be fair, that's just a horrible shot of him, he's actually a very handsome man.

  • When people with zero humour create blogs to get a re-action you know B1 and B2 have little in their fake lives.

    People should take handicapped people seriously. They are special people Fwank and Snake a special. They are 2 of a kind but not the same. They need affection and they choose this platform to live out their fantasies.

    Enjoy the year special people. Lets have a cracker for 2020.
