Police Officer Allegedly Assaulted in the Execution of Duty in Response to a Domestic Violence Incident Report in NSW

It is reported that a 27-year-old man has allegedly assaulted a senior police officer in the NSW Orana region.

Police officers were responding to an incident at a Merilba St residence in Narromine, on or about four O’clock in the afternoon on Christmas eve. During this time, the 27-year-old man has allegedly alighted from his vehicle and punched the senior police officer’s head multiple times.

The alleged blows to his head resulted in the senior officer falling to the ground and unconscious before the man allegedly continued the assault.

It wasn’t until a woman familiar with the 27-year-old man interposed before the police officer returned to consciousness.

Following this, the man allegedly smashed the officer’s radio into the windscreen of the vehicle before throwing it away.

Paramedics and member of the police force soon arrived to assist before the 27-year-old man was arrested and charged with assaulting a police officer in the execution of duty causing actual bodily harm and breaching an apprehended domestic violence order.

The man was bail refused and faces the charges before the Dubbo Local Court.

The injured police officer was admitted to the Narromine Hospital and then to the Dubbo Hospital for treatment before being released.

The law prescribes up to seven years imprisonment with a three-years standard non-parole period for the offence of assaulting a police officer occasioning actual bodily harm, pursuant to section 60(2) of the Crimes Act (NSW) 1900.

The standard non-parole period represents the period of full-time custody prescribed before one is eligible for release on parole to serve the remainder of the penalty. It applies for cases that fall in the mid-range of objective seriousness for offences of that kind. It is not a mandatory requirement to be imposed by courts, rather it is a guidepost to assist the court in the sentencing discretion.
