A man has been charged with armed robbery, assault with a firearm, intimidation and police pursuit following a siege in Sydney's west.

About 5.30am on Wednesday, a 29-year-old man was in his car on Griffith Street, Blacktown when a man on a motorbike approached his car.

Police allege the man on the bike produced a gun and took the other man's mobile phone and wallet before riding off.

Just before 8.30pm, the same man allegedly attended a restaurant on Blacktown Road, Blacktown and left without paying for his meal or drinks.

Staff at the restaurant confronted the man, who allegedly threatened them before riding off on a bike police allege is stolen.

On Thursday, the same man was allegedly involved in a road rage incident with a 29-year-old man on Sunnyholt Road, Blacktown, where police allege he produced a gun and threatened the other driver before smashing his windscreen with the gun's butt.

While patrolling, police identified a Honda motorbike, believed to be involved in the crimes, travelling on St Martins Crescent, Blacktown just after 1pm yesterday.

Officers signalled for the rider to stop and a pursuit was initiated when he allegedly failed to do so.

The pursuit was called off a short time later, but Polair continued to monitor its movements with other pursuits initiated and cancelled around St Marys.

After receiving a tipoff, police attended an address at Turner Street, Blacktown where two men were seen with a motorcycle at the front before running inside.

Further police cars attended and a perimeter was set up around the location. A short time later three men inside the home were arrested without further incident.

A search warrant was executed at the home and a number of items were collected as evidence.
