Woman assaults two police

AN 18-year-old woman has been charged with assaulting police after allegedly punching two officers in the head in Bundaberg early on Saturday.

The female officers went to a disturbance outside a shop on Bourbong Street, Bundaberg, at 1.45am.

As they tried to arrest the teenager, she allegedly punched both of them, a police statement said.

She was eventually restrained and taken to the Bundaberg Watchhouse.

The officers suffered bruising and swelling.

The teenager has been charged with assaulting police, obstructing police and public nuisance.

She will face Bundaberg Magistrates Court on February 15.

Look out hatchlings about

WOONGARRA Coast residents and visitors are urged to take care when on the beach during the turtle hatchling season by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA).

Residents are asked not to disturb hatchlings as they make their way to the water and ensure all dogs are on a leash.

“Turtle hatchlings are attracted to artificial light and instead of heading to the ocean where they need to be, hatchlings can end up in campsites or even try to cross roads to get to the light source,” GBRMPA ecosystem conservation and sustainable use manager Dr Mark Read said.
