A 42-YEAR-OLD man has been charged with allegedly carrying a gun on a Sydney train in broad daylight, terrifying passengers on the midday service.
Police said the man engaged in an “interaction” with another passenger, allegedly lifting up his shirt to show what appeared to be a handgun at his waist.
“The passenger then moved away from the man and contacted police on his mobile phone,” NSW Police said in a statement.
The man then fled through six carriages and was pursued.

When the train arrived at Town Hall Station, police boarded the train and the man was identified and arrested at gunpoint.
During a search of the man, officers located a silver handgun with a brown hand grip. It was determined on closer inspection that the item was a cap gun.
The man was taken to Day Street Police Station. He was later charged with intimidation, wilfully interfering with comfort and safety of passenger and possession of an unauthorised pistol.
The man was refused bail to appear at Central Local Court on Thursday.
