Teen arrested after allegedly assaulting two officers at Macarthur train station

A 19-year-old woman has been charged after allegedly assaulting two police officers at Macarthur Railway Station yesterday.

Campbelltown Police Transport Command officers were patrolling the station about 5.25pm on Wednesday, June 16 and attempted to speak with the woman who was allegedly travelling without a valid ticket.

Police allege the woman attempted to flee before kicking two male senior constables; one in the stomach and the other in the neck and head.

The officers deployed OC spray and arrested and searched the woman, police say, allegedly uncovering a knife in her handbag.

The teen was taken to Campbelltown Police Station via Campbelltown Hospital and charged with two counts of assaulting an officer in the execution of duty, resisting an officer in the execution of duty, failing to state her name or address to an authorised officer, travelling or attempting to travel without a valid ticket, and having custody of a knife in a public place.

The woman was refused bail to face Campbelltown Local Court today, where police say she was given strict conditional bail to appear before the same court on Monday, July 5.

Both officers were taken to Campbelltown Hospital for treatment of minor injuries and have since been released.
