Police officer charged over alleged off-duty assaults

A Hunter police officer has been charged over alleged off-duty assaults.

In February, an investigation commenced after a physical altercation between neighbours was reported, which involved an off-duty male police officer.

Inquiries uncovered another physical altercation between the off-duty officer and the neighbour’s son, which occurred in December 2019.

Following extensive investigations, the 39-year-old detective senior constable was served a Future Court Attendance Notice for assault occasioning actual bodily harm and two counts of common assault.

He is due to appear at Toronto Local Court on Tuesday 1 December 2020.

His employment status is currently under review.
