The disturbing scene took place just before police stormed into the house and arrested the man in connection with the alleged assault on the female officers.
He would be known to the police because of previous mental health problems. It is alleged that he also later assaulted a third police officer after he was taken into custody.
The first alleged incident occurred just before noon near the Bankstown Hoyts Cinema on Jacob Street Terrace.
The two senior female officers were patrolling the area when they spotted a man standing on the road and warned him to move before being hit by traffic.

The man is then seen in the distance running away while the policewoman who was the victim of the alleged attack bends over and grabs her face.
After his arrest, the suspect then allegedly assaulted a third officer, a 32-year-old male senior officer, while he was in custody.
The male officer and the two female officers of the Bankstown Police Transport Command, aged 30 and 32, were all treated at Bankstown Hospital.
NSW Police added: ‘Charges are expected to be filed and the investigation into the incident continues.’
