WATCH | NSW Police release bodycam of alleged attack on officers
NSW Police have released bodycam footage of the attack on female officers in Sydney’s south-west.
A 43-year-old man was charged after an assault that left three senior officers in hospital.
Officers from Bankstown Police Transport Command were allegedly assaulted by a man after instructing him to move away from the middle of Jacob Street Terrace.
The man allegedly punched and kicked both officers, who used OC spray in an attempt to subdue him, before he ran from the area and boarded a train.
A short time later he was arrested at a Yagoona home and taken to Bankstown Police Station, where he allegedly assaulted a third officer – a 32-year-old male senior constable – while in custody.
NSW Police Association President Tony King told Clinton Maynard attacks on officers are being caught on camera more often, leading to a greater chance of arrest and conviction.
“This really does display the danger that police can face out there trying to keep the community safe.”
