MID NORTH COAST WOMAN CHARGED WITH AGGRAVATED ASSAULT

A woman will face court today over an alleged aggravated assault on the mid north coast last week.

At 11.30am last Friday, a 28-year-old woman allegedly pushed a 42-year-old woman against the wall of a home on Bangoran Place, Port Macquarie.

The 28-year-old also allegedly threatened the older woman with a knife, asking her to hand over her phone.

Her dress was ripped off her body, before the younger woman left empty handed.

Police started an investigation, and just after 3.30pm yesterday, officers arrested the 28-year-old woman.

She was taken to Port Macquarie Police Station and charged with aggravated assault with intent to rob.

The woman will face Port Macquarie Local Court today.
