McGlinchey's father was also charged in relation to the Dee Why matter.

Dean McGlinchey has also been accused of the attempted kidnapping of a woman last week in Burwood after a police officer linked his auto to the vehicle used in the abduction attempt.

Yesterday afternoon he allegedly smashed a 54 year old man across the face with a bar stool, leaving him needing surgery for serious facial cuts and a missing tooth.

McGlinchey Jnr has been accussed of assaulting a hotel manager.

A man wanted in relation to an alleged attempted kidnapping in Sydney's inner west has been charged over a serious assault on the northern beaches in which a man was hospitalised after being bashed with a bar stool.

Dean McGlinchey, 26, from Belrose on Sydney's northern beaches was detained by police in Frenchs Forest yesterday, after his vehicle was spotted following a serious assault in nearby Dee Why.

Police said the woman, 27, had made attempts to walk around him, however McGlinchey Jnr grabbed her, punched her in the face, breaking her glasses, and flung her in the boot of his auto.

The 27-year-old woman was only in Australia for a short time.

A passing motorist stopped to help, reportedly allowing the woman to escape.

The younger man was charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, two counts of common assault, affray, and driving with a low-range prescribed concentration of alcohol (PCA).

McGlinchey did not appear in court today and did not apply for bail.

He was granted strict conditional bail to appear before Manly Local Court on 21 June 2017.
