MAN CHARGED OVER DOMESTIC ASSAULT

A man will appear in court charged over a domestic assault in the upper Hunter yesterday.

Emergency services were called to a home on Macqueen Street at Aberdeen just after 5.30pm, and treated a woman for facial injuries.

It’s alleged a man assaulted the 42-year-old, and damaged the front door of the home.

The woman was taken to John Hunter Hospital, before the 26-year-old man was arrested nearby.

He was taken to Muswellbrook Hospital to be treated for superficial lacerations.

The man was later given several domestic violence charges.

He’ll appear at Muswellbrook Local Court today.
