A man will face court today after allegedly punching and spitting on an officer during an arrest in Sydney’s north-west overnight.

About 12.10am (Wednesday 10 March 2021), officers attached to The Hills Police Area Command attended a home on Greenwood Drive, Kellyville, following reports of a domestic violence-related incident.

Police were told an 18-year-old man had broken a glass panel door after an argument with a woman, who is known to him.

When officers attempted to arrest the man, he allegedly punched a probationary constable in the head on multiple occasions. After being arrested, he then allegedly spat in the eye of the same officer.

The man was taken to Castle Hill Police Station and charged with destroy or damage property (DV), and two counts of assault police officer in execution of duty without actual bodily harm.

He was refused bail to appear at Parramatta Local Court later today.

The male probationary constable was taken to Westmead Hospital for treatment of minor facial injuries. He has since been released.
