Man charged over alleged attack of two police at Cooee Bay

POLICE were called to a home in Cooee Bay last night and received more than they bargained for. 

A woman had been knocked out during a fight between a man, woman and child at the house, but when Police arrived they were greeted by a large man who proceeded to kick one in the head, then punch the other in the head. 

The incident took place on Thursday at 7.30pm and police said the man had been moderately affected by alcohol.

The girl who rang the Yeppoon Police was not injured in any way other than being frightened by the ordeal.

Both of the officers had to attend the Yeppoon Hospital. The woman who was knocked out is sore but otherwise unharmed.

The attacker has been charged with assault, two serious assaults on police and wilful damage.

He was due to appear in the Yeppoon Magistrates' Court today and has since been released. He is due to appear in court again on May 16.
