An 18-year-old Latham woman was arrested early this morning (Saturday, August 10) after she assaulted a police officer in Latham.
At about 11.55pm last night (Friday, August 9), police responded to reports of a disturbance at an eighteenth birthday party in Chubb Place, Latham.
Following two altercations police officers began to disperse the party at which time a woman aggressively confronted police, striking a female officer several times in the face.
The woman was conveyed to the ACT Watch House and charged with common assault. She will appear in ACT Magistrates Court on August 22.
