A third man has been charged over a riot in Sydney's western suburbs, where thousands of people clashed with police following the alleged stabbing of Assyrian bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel.

As part of the investigation, a 28-year-old man was arrested in Horningsea Park at 7.20am on Saturday and taken to Fairfield Police Station.
