A man has been accused of making alleged online threats to ABC reporter Stan Grant.
NSW Police confirmed in a statement to news.com.au that officers arrested a man on Thursday after investigating alleged threats made against a “59-year-old man.”
“At approximately 11.50am on Tuesday, officers assigned to Sydney City Police Area Command received a report of alleged online threats made against a 59-year-old man,” the statement read.
“Following their investigation, police arrested a 41-year-old man in Fairfield Heights yesterday at 6:40 p.m.
“The man was taken to the Fairfield Police Station where he was charged with use of cab to threaten grievous harm and service of cab to threaten/harass/offend.
“Man granted bail to appear in Fairfield Local Court on Wednesday, May 31, 2023.”
The press published photos yesterday with Stan Grant and his reporter wife Tracey Holmes as they attended Randwick Police Station.
ABC News editor Justin Stevens said last week: “Over many months, but particularly in recent days, Stan Grant has been subjected to grotesque racist abuse, including threats to his safety. This has gotten especially virulent since he appeared as part of ABC’s coronation coverage.
Grant is currently on an 8 week break from D+R.
