Qld police bitten and kicked


Two people, believed to be a mother and son, have been charged for biting and kicking police during a stand-off in north Queensland.

Two police officers were called to a disturbance in the Townsville suburb of Wulguru on Monday night when they were set upon by a 19-year-old man and a woman aged 47.

The man is accused of biting one police officer on the hand, while the woman allegedly kicked the other.

The alleged attack is the latest in a spate of police assaults in the city in recent days.

The pair have been charged with the man to face Townsville Magistrates Court on Tuesday and the woman to appear on May 19.
