A kindhearted female police sergeant was left with a broken nose, sliced cheek and bloodied uniform after trying to offer an alleged violent criminal a cup of tea.
The 41-year-old man was arrested just after 5pm on Monday following an alleged assault inside a home in Halekulani, on the NSW Central Coast.
He was taken back to Wyong Police station in handcuffs and moved to a cell.
According to the NSW Police Association, the policewoman was allegedly violently set upon by the man when she attempted to give him a cup of tea.
Radio personality Ray Hadley, who said he had spoken to the police union, revealed the sickening details of the alleged assault on his 2GB morning show.
‘The allegation is, and it’s on the charge sheet apparently, the alleged offender grabbed this officer by the hair,’ a police union spokesperson told Mr Hadley.
‘She was actually taking him a cup of tea in the cell.
‘He grabbed her ears and pulled her head down by the ears kneeing her in the face and then punched her in the face a number of times, allegedly, if you’ve seen the photo her nose is spread across her face.’
When other officers attempted to intervene, the man allegedly tried to run from the station but was quickly detained.
The officer, who sustained a broken nose during the alleged attack, had to be taken to the Wyong Hospital for treatment including stitches.
Mr Hadley uploaded a photograph of the injured officer to Facebook.
‘A female NSW Police sergeant was savagely assaulted at Wyong Police Station on Monday,’ he wrote alongside the confronting image.
‘This is what our police put up with on a daily basis.’
The man was hit with 10 serious offences including assault against a police officer, trespassing, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, resisting arrest and escaping police custody.
He has also been charged with aggravated break and enter.
His application for bail was denied and he will be remanded in police custody until his court date in May.
Daily Mail Australia contacted the Wyong Police Station for a detailed account but the Duty Officer was not available for immediate comment.
