Teen Arrested After Assaulting Two Police Officers
A teenager's been arrested after allegedly biting two police officers at Woodville yesterday. The bizarre attack took place at Bunnings on Port Road just after 6:30pm.
Police were dealing with an unrelated incident when they were notified by staff of a teenager shoplifting. Police will allege that when officers approached the boy he lashed out biting a male officer's arm. It's alleged the female officer attempted to restrain the boy, but she too was bitten. The officers were treated in hospital for their injuries.
A 15-year-old boy from Paradise was charged with aggravated assault causing harm, theft and resisting arrest. He'll face youth court today.
