Police

A 21-year-old woman who is alleged to have violently attacked two women in Darwin’s CBD area early on Sunday morning, has been arrested and charged.

At 4:40am, police CCTV captured the woman violently assaulting two women on the corner of Smith and Edmunds Street in an apparent unprovoked and prolonged attacked, despite witnesses attempts to stop her.

The woman stayed in the area and attempted to engage in fights with other women, before she was arrested by police at the scene.

Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Bland of Strike Force Trident said police were investigating the incident, and called for any victims who were subject to assault from the woman, to contact them.

“We’re working to identify and speak with the victims who were also assaulted and urging them to come forward.”

The offender will face the Darwin Local Court today charged with the following;

  • Aggravated assault
  • Assault person

The woman, whose parole had been revoked, will face additional charges of aggravated unlawful entry, damage to property, stealing and possess stolen property, in relation to an unlawful entry of a Bayview home in November last year.
