Officer knocked out in station scuffle
A MAN assaulted two Transperth officers at Claremont train station about 10.45pm on June 7.
Detective-Constable Ryan Byrne said one of the officers was hit on the head and he fell to the ground and lost consciousness before the officer’s partner scuffled with the man, subduing him with pepper spray and handcuffs.
“The man who was arrested was in the company of another man during the incident and police would like to know the identity of this man to assist with their investigation into this serious assault,” DetConst Byrne said.
The second man (pictured) was described as lightskinned, aged 20-30, slim, about 175cm tall with long, brown hair tied up. He was wearing dark-coloured pants and a light-coloured jacket.
