Charges over police assault

ANOTHER Tasmanian police officer has been assaulted in the line of duty - the fifth attack in the past two weeks.

A 41-year-old Hobart man appeared in the Hobart Magistrate's Court this morning charged with two counts of assaulting a police officer and breaching the peace.

Police were called to a block of units late last night in relation to a noisy party.

Not long after, police returned to the units after a report of unruly behaviour at the address.

Two people, a 41-year-old woman and the man who appeared in court, were arrested for breach of the peace when they refused to comply with police directions.

During his arrest the man is alleged to have spat on the officer and punched him in the face, breaking his nose.

Assistant Commissioner Phil Wilkinson said the officer was treated at the Royal Hobart Hospital.

"The officer is recovering and will return to work in a day or so," Mr Wilkinson said.

"While we know policing can be dangerous, it is unacceptable that an officer is assaulted while undertaking their duties."

The latest assault follows another on a Hobart policewoman last week.

The officer was bashed unconscious and sprayed with capsicum spray at Risdon Vale.

In late July two officers were assaulted while on the beat on Hobart's waterfront and a lone officer was assaulted at Derby.
