A snap attack as biters go for police
POLICE had to battle biters in two separate incidents.
The worst saw a dozen paramedics and police forced to hold down an assault victim after he woke up during treatment and tried to attack them.
The 28-year-old, who was knocked unconscious outside the Rose And Crown Hotel in Parramatta about 11.15pm on Friday, became aggressive after he regained consciousness.
He began swearing and attempting to hit and bite officers and paramedics outside the hotel on Victoria Rd.
He was taken to Westmead Hospital for treatment.
Later, police were forced to use capsicum spray to stop a woman biting the arm of an officer.
Two police had attempted to arrest a 32-year-old Central Coast woman after she allegedly hit a parked car before fleeing the scene.
It was during the arrest that the woman allegedly bit the officer’s right forearm. The officer was taken to Wyong Hospital where he has had a tetanus shot and antibiotic treatment. He is undergoing tests as a precaution.
The woman was charged and will appear in Wyong Court on March 7.
Police and paramedics try to control the biter.
