A man who allegedly stole a car from the driveway of a Figtree home after holding a gun to the owner's head - and threatening to kill him - remains behind bars after a magistrate deemed him too much of a risk to be released.
Glenn Robert Wilson, from Barrack Heights, faced Wollongong Local Court on Wednesday, charged with robbery while armed with a dangerous weapon.
I know you're involved in kidnapping me and raping my girlfriend, your [sic] going to have to pay for it, I'm going to take your car, give me the keys.
Wilson, 42, handed himself in to police on April 15 - six days after he allegedly threatened another man with a gun and stole his silver Range Rover at a home on St George Avenue.
According to police facts, tendered during his bail application, Wilson rang a door bell at the front gate and was allowed in by the resident.
The pair - who were known to each other - entered the backyard, because Wilson wanted a drink. He then asked to see the man's car.
According to police, Wilson's back was to the man but he could be seen "fiddling in his pants".
Wilson allegedly then "turned and pointed a firearm/handgun at the face of the victim and told him to get on the ground".
He is then accused of telling the man: "I know you're involved in kidnapping me and raping my girlfriend, your [sic] going to have to pay for it, I'm going to take your car, give me the keys."
The facts said Wilson allowed the man to remove some personal items from the car, before he reversed it out of the driveway and fled.
"Prior to leaving, the accused threatened the victim saying he was part of the 'Lone Wolfs' [sic] and would 'come back and kill' the victim if he contacted police," the facts said. The man ran inside and alerted police.
The court heard ammunition was found in a bag at the home, which still needed forensic testing, and the firearm was "still outstanding".
CCTV cameras at the home captured Wilson's arrival and some interactions between the pair. The vision, aired in court, also showed the car being driven away.
However, the garage area of the house, where police allege Wilson produced the gun and threatened the man, was not covered by CCTV.
Defence lawyer Matt Ward said the lack of such vision provided no context of what allegedly took place and there was no evidence linking the ammo to Wilson.
Mr Ward also said the victim's actions, as depicted in the CCTV, were in "stark contrast to someone who has just been robbed of their vehicle in their own home".
The court heard Wilson had mental health conditions. He was supported in the courtroom by his partner.
In opposing bail, the prosecution cited "serious concerns" about the safety of the victim and the community.
Magistrate Geraldine Beattie agreed, denying Wilson bail on the basis no conditions could adequately mitigate those concerns. He will return to court on June 19.
