Man charged with assaulting policeman
IT is alleged a Subiaco man (30) assaulted a policeman partially inside his accelerating car after he was found suspiciously disconnecting a fuse box at a May Avenue, Subiaco, home about 11.45am last Wednesday.
Police said the man was with a woman, who sat in their nearby car, and he allegedly became aggressive when two officers walked towards both to make an arrest near the house.
The man got back into the car before one of the officers attempted to stop it leaving.
Police will allege the officer was assaulted in the car before it was stopped, after which the man and woman were arrested.
The man was charged with multiple counts of assaulting and obstructing public officers, reckless driving, failing to stop, no driver’s licence, possession of drug paraphernalia and a prohibited weapon, and an act causing bodily harm.
He was remanded in custody to reappear at Perth Magistrates Court on April 10.
The woman had not been charged at the time of going to print.
