Sheriff injured, two arrested in Nowra eviction

A sheriff has been assaulted and a woman was subdued with capsicum spray after an eviction turned ugly in East Nowra on Tuesday.

A 23-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman, both from North Nowra, allegedly hindered and resisted two sheriffs sent to evict a woman from the property.

At 12.10pm police were called to a property in Tarraba Crescent after reports a sheriff had been assaulted.

Up to seven police converged on the scene after the sheriffs were refused entry to the property that was being repossessed under a court tribunal order.

The North Nowra residents were arrested and taken to Nowra Police Station where they are helping police with inquiries.
