New South Wales Police Officer Suffers Facial Injuries and Concussion After Assault


Two teenagers have been charged for allegedly assaulting a police officer in an affluent Sydney suburb on Friday morning, in an incident that left the officer with concussion and injuries to his face.

Police from Rose Bay Local Area Command were called to Wentworth Road in Vaucluse after reports of a car crash just after 4am.

Police officers chased down four teenagers who had fled after they had crashed their Dodge luxury SUV into the barrier gate to the grounds of the heritage-listed Vaucluse House.

As a police officer attempted to make an arrest he was assaulted by one of the offenders, police said.

The officer was treated at the scene by paramedics and taken to hospital suffering a concussion and facial injuries.

It is the second alleged attack by teenagers on Sydney police officers in just over a week.

Two teenagers were bailed and are due to appear at Bidura Childrens Court on February 1.
