Sydney Police Have Been ‘Punched, Spat On’ While Breaking Up a Party of 100 Teenagers

A 13-year-old boy is among four teens suspected of assaulting police officers who broke up a massive party overnight in northwest Sydney.

Police were called to the home in Lethbridge Park at Mindanao Crescent about 12.30am after reports of people fighting.

When officers arrived , they found about 100 youths at home, reportedly in violation of coronavirus regulations in New South Wales, which limits gatherings inside homes to 20.

When police tried to break up the crowd, police alleged that a number of teenagers surrounded the officers and were aggressive and hostile towards them.

A 17-year-old girl was arrested and taken to Mount Druitt Police Station, along with three teenage boys, aged 13, 16 and 17.

Police alleged the teens tried to harass the officers while at the station. Two of the boys in the station reportedly urinated before spitting at the officers, striking one constable in the cheek.

The boys now face a number of charges, including police resistance, police assault, and bail violations.

The 17-year-old girl has been charged with possession of marijuana, resisting police, obstructing police and breaching bail.

The 13-year-old boy was also charged with assaulting a paramedic and malicious harm while the 16-year-old was charged with malicious damage in addition.

All four were denied bail from police for appearing this morning at a children’s court. Investigations into the house party are ongoing, with the home tenants likely to be fined for violations of COVID-19.
