Man Smashes Up Parramatta Courthouse With A Hammer
A man is in hospital receiving treatment to his hand after using a hammer to smash windows at Parramatta Local Court last night.
The 52-year-old man was standing at the front of the courthouse wielding the hammer repeatedly into the windows at 7.15pm.
The man appeared to be intoxicated and told police he had been drinking vodka.
He was taken to Westmead Hospital where he is still being treated for cuts to his hand.
Parramatta Local Court is expected to be disrupted today while the building is being repaired.
