Latest Posts

Protester allegedly struck out at police and assaulted an officer.

A police officer was allegedly attacked twice during a protest in Melbourne on Saturday, prompting an investigation.

The officer was carrying out traffic management duties on King St in Melbourne when a fight broke out between a driver and a protester around 1.30pm.

Police are searching for a man they allege assaulted the officer twice during a ‘freedom rally’, which appeared to be protesting against COVID-19 vaccine passports, on King Street in Melbourne on Saturday.

When police tried to break up the argument, the protester allegedly lashed out and assaulted an officer.

He returned to the rally crowd after being sprayed with pepper spray but allegedly returned after a short time to assault the same officer a second time.

The officer was treated for the non-critical injuries he sustained during the attack.
