Hit in the face

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

A 63 year-old Deniliquin man has been charged with allegedly assaulting a police officer.

Police had gone to the man’s central Deniliquin home about 3.30pm on Wednesday to speak with him about an unrelated matter.

Police said the man became ‘‘frustrated’’ and raised a towel, and used it to strike a police officer across the face.
