PAIR CHARGED WITH ALLEGEDLY ASSAULTING POLICE

A man and woman have been charged over allegedly assaulting two police officers at Dubbo last night.

Police were called to a home on Palmer Street just after midnight, after reports of a domestic altercation.

When they arrived, officers ran to assist a woman in a struggle with a man outside the home.

As the officers attempted to arrest the man, he allegedly struggled with them before threatening and punching a leading senior constable in the head.

The man was arrested and taken to Dubbo Police Station, and the woman was later found hiding in a nearby yard.

It’s alleged she jumped a fence, before striking an officer on the hand with a large tool.

She was sprayed with OC spray, before being arrested and taken to Dubbo Police Station.

The two were charged with a string of offences.

The man was refused bail to appear at Dubbo Local Court today, while the woman will appear at Dubbo Local Court on August 26.
