Parramatta shooting: New arrest in Curtis Cheng's murder

POLICE have arrested and charged another man in relation to the shooting of police accountant Curtis Cheng outside headquarters in Parramatta last month.

On Friday afternoon, police from the Joint Counter Terrorism Team and Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad stopped a car at Ryde in north-west Sydney and arrested the 22-year-old driver.

The man, from Marsfield in Sydney's north, was arrested and charged with participating in a criminal group.
