Man Accused of Assaulting SA Police Officer At Highbury Appears In Court

A lone police officer feared for his life when he was allegedly attacked by a man who threatened to kill him during an arrest.

Despite the seriousness of the circumstances the constable allegedly faced, it is not unusual for officers to be on solo patrol, a police spokeswoman said.

Police Association president Mark Carroll told The Advertiser the traffic officer — named in court documents as Paul Jelfs — was the victim of a “frenzied attack” at Highbury on Wednesday.
