Graffiti attack at Corrimal

POLICE Transport Command (PTC) officers have arrested a man who they will allege deliberately goaded authorities while performing graffiti offences at Corrimal.
About 10.10pm yesterday (Tuesday), PTC officers responded to reports of a man vandalising property at Corrimal Railway Station.
It will be alleged CCTV cameras at the station captured images of the man drawing graffiti tags with a texta pen on stanchion posts, billboards and other property at the station.
Police further allege the man is seen in the CCTV images sticking out his tongue at cameras and performing a lewd act.
Officers arrested the man at the scene and took him to Wollongong Police Station, where he was charged with a number of offences, including wilful and obscene exposure.
He was also charged with breach of bail conditions, having been released from custody earlier the same day for other matters.
The 19-year-old Griffith man was refused bail to appear in Wollongong Local Court today (Wednesday).
