A father who sparked a manhunt in western Sydney after he allegedly kidnapped his two children and assaulted their mother has been charged.
The incident happened shortly after the 49-year-old broke into a home in South Wentworthville on Saturday evening.
Police say he assaulted the 47-year-old mother before taking off with his 12-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter.
The trio was found at a home in Greystanes on Sunday evening.
The father was charged with several domestic-related offences including common assault.
He was refused bail to appear at Fairfield Local Court on Monday.
The children have been reunited with their mother, police said.
