Kids’ lucky escape
TWO children were lucky to escape serious injury and a 21-year-old Tingha woman was airlifted to Tamworth after the car they were travelling in hit a large gum tree on Saturday.
The woman was taken to Inverell
hospital by ambulance before the Westpac Rescue Helicopter airlifted her to
Tamworth hospital with suspected spinal injuries and a fractured leg.
The crash happened at about 9.40am on Tingha Rd, Stannifer, and the two children, aged one and two, were in the backseat but were not injured as they were in approved child seats and restraints.
Investigations continue into the cause of the accident, but a police spokesman said this was a reminder of the importance of having children correctly restrained in approved child seats.
“In this case, not only have the children survived, they have been uninjured,” he said.
A 21-YEAR-OLD Inverell man has been charged with two counts of common assault, intimidation and armed with intent following a domestic incident in Oxley Pl and Chested St on the weekend.
Police arrested the man about 10pm on Saturday night in Chester St, Inverell.
Police allege the man slapped and threw his 18-year-old pregnant girlfriend to the ground and threatened to assault her with a large rock and knife.
The man has been refused bail and attended Inverell Bail Court yesterday where he was released on conditional bail to appear at Inverell Local Court on Thursday.
Not moving on
ABOUT 1.30am on Sunday, police said a 23-year-old West Tamworth man took exception to his friend being ejected from a licensed premise within the Tamworth CBD and took off his shirt and attempted to engage two security officers in a fight.
The intoxicated man was subdued by the security officers and held on the ground until police arrived.
Police gave the man a “Move On
Direction” to leave the CBD and not return for six hours due to his aggression and intoxication. The man was released into the care of a friend and was taken from the scene. However, the man turned up again at about 2.05am, approached the front doors of the same licensed premises
carrying a car jack which he used to smash a pane of glass on the lower portion of the front door.
A 37-YEAR-OLD man and a 21-year-old man were both seen urinating in the
Tamworth CBD on Friday night and early on Sunday morning.
Police saw the 37-year-old urinating on a street light on the intersection of Bourke and Peel streets at 11.20pm on Friday.
Police stopped and spoke to the man about his unacceptable behaviour and issued him with a Criminal Infringement Notice for Offensive Conduct which carries a penalty of $200.
At 2.47am on Sunday Tamworth police saw a 21-year-old Hillvue Rd man standing facing the Centrepoint carpark in Brisbane St with his pants and underpants down around his ankles. The man was approached by police and quickly pulled up his pants.
Police said he told them his pants had fallen off and police gave him with a $200 Criminal Infringement Notice for Offensive Conduct.
