POLICE OFFICER PUNCHED AT CENTRAL COAST RESTAURANT

A police officer has been left with a broken nose, after being punched in the face at Ettalong Beach on the Central Coast.

Police were called to a restaurant on Ocean View Road around 10:30 on Thursday night, where it’s alleged a shirtless man punched a senior constable in the face before running from the scene.

The 26-year-old was arrested at Woy Woy early this morning, and will face Gosford Local Court later today.
