Teens hit cops in party brawl
POLICE ATTEND WILD SCENE
A POLICE officer was punched in the mouth and an unmarked patrol car pelted with rocks and bottles after a 17th birthday party spiralled out of control in Bidwill on the weekend.
Social media is believed to have triggered the wild party at a home in Deccan Way, where police were called just before midnight on Friday.
Officers found more than 100 people, aged in their early to late teens, outside the party and were forced to use capsicum spray to break up the crowd when partygoers became aggressive.
Officers called for assistance from nearby commands when about 60 people started advancing on police and started kicking and throwing rocks and bottles at an unmarked police car.
The attack allowed three people, who had been arrested, to escape the police car during the melee, while a bottle was thrown at an officer, a fellow officer suffered a cut hand and a female officer was hit in the back of the head with an object. A second policewoman was punched in the mouth.
