Woman charged with assaulting ambulance officer who was trying to help her

A 25-year-old woman has been charged with attacking an ambulance officer who was trying to help her in Sydney’s south-west.

Police said that just after 1.00pm on Tuesday, paramedics were called to a library at Ingleburn, after reports of a concern for welfare.

Upon arrival, paramedics treated a woman before requesting she attend a hospital.


While walking to the ambulance, the woman grabbed a 39-year-old female paramedic by the throat. Luckily, other paramedics were able to intervene to prevent any further injury.

The woman was arrested by police at the scene and charged with common assault.

She was granted conditional bail to appear at Campbelltown Local Court on Monday 26 June.
