Two local police officers have been charged with the assault of a 92-year-old man earlier this year in Wollondilly.

Officers from the Camden area police command responded to reports of a domestic incident at a home at Campbell Street, Picton, after 8.45pm on Sunday, January 21.

The 92-year-old man received injuries which were allegedly the result of an interaction with the officers.

He was taken to hospital where he was admitted with a fracture to his right elbow, and significant bruising to his head and arms.

Following an internal investigation, a male senior constable and a male constable, both attached to the South West Metropolitan Region, were served court attendance notices last Wednesday (June 12) for assault occasioning actual bodily harm, with the constable facing a further charge of assault.

One of the officers will appear at Campbelltown Local Court on Tuesday, July 30. The other is due to appear at Campbelltown Local Court on Tuesday, August 6.

Both officers have been suspended with pay.


In a separate incident, police are appealing for information after a man was injured in a suspected hit and run in Liverpool over the weekend.

Emergency services were called to Terminus Street just after 2am (Saturday, June 15), after an injured man was found on the concrete median strip.

The 44-year-old man was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Liverpool Hospital with head and leg injuries. Police have been told his injuries are not life-threatening.

Officers attached to Liverpool City Police Area Command secured a crime scene, which has been examined by specialist officers attached to the Crash Investigation Unit (CIU).

Police are appealing for the driver of what is believed to be a grey hatchback to contact Liverpool Police Station as they believe they may be able to assist with inquiries.
