Woman charged after punching Ambulance Paramedic in the face

A woman has been charged after she brutally assaulted a NSW Ambulance Paramedic who was transporting her to hospital on the state’s Central Coast last night.

Just after 10.30pm, a NSW Ambulance Paramedic crew responded to a call for assistance at Bateau Bay.

The two paramedics spoke with a 42-year-old woman and began assessing her whilst they drove to hospital.


During the journey, it’s alleged the woman became aggressive, and the ambulance was pulled over to the side of the road.

When one of the paramedics opened the sliding door of the vehicle, the woman allegedly lunged at him and punched him in the face.

The woman, who did not require medical treatment, was arrested and taken to Wyong Police Station.

She was charged with obstruct or hinder ambulance officer by act of violence and has been conditionally bailed to appear in Wyong Local Court on Monday 9 March 2016.
