Two men charged with assaulting police

TWO young Ulladulla men were charged with assaulting and resisting police at Mollymook on Saturday night.

At about 10.40pm a call about a noisy party sent police to a home in Parkview Drive. 

While police were moving on several people from the location they were told two men were letting down the tyres of a police vehicle. 

Police alleged one of the men ran away before running straight into a female office.

In the following struggle, the man allegedly kicked one of the officer’s legs causing her to fall.

While police were attempting to restrain the man a second man allegedly threw a can of alcohol at police, narrowly missing. 

The man allegedly continued towards the officer and police used capsicum spray.

A 19-year-old Ulladulla man and a 20-year-old Ulladulla man were arrested and taken to Nowra Police Station.

The 19-year-old man was charged with malicious damage to property, resist and assault police and will appear before Milton Local Court on June 26.

The 20-year-old was charged with resist and assault police and will also appear in court on the same date.
