Shocking Images Of NSW Police Officer Battered On Patrol Goes Viral

It's no secret that our emergency service workers have to put up with some pretty horrific things.

Our firefighters, hospital staff and police officers deal with death, destruction and sadness on a daily basis. But one of the things that they shouldn't have to put up with is abuse.

When cops arrived at the scene, the 48-year-old allegedly became aggressive and lunged at the 22-year-old officer.

Despite other officers using capsicum spray and a taser, the man was still able to bring the young cop to the ground where he allegedly tried to gouge her eyes out and attack her.

According to radio station 2GB, she was treated at St George Hospital but has to avoid physical contact with friends and family after the bite mark on her head pierced her skin.

NSW Police Association wrote on Facebook: "When our members are bitten, spat on or exposed to bodily fluids from violent offenders they are subjected to months of testing and medical uncertainty following the attack. Enough is enough."

Association President Tony King added to 10 Daily: "This is a horrific thing for police officers and their families to have to endure.

"This officer like many others will now have to change their lifestyle for fear of passing on possible infection. Can you imagine explaining to your own child why you can't give them a kiss goodnight?"

The photos posted on social media of the officer after the attack have gone viral, with many people disgusted that our public servants have to put up with stuff like this.

One person wrote: "It should become law that anyone who attack's police, fire brigade or nurses and ambulance are given automatic jail time. It's not acceptable."

Another said: "Enough is enough. The courts need to step up do their job and send a message that this is not on and you WILL be punished if you do this. Not just give a slap on the wrist say you've been naughty please don't do that again."

A third added: "Absolutely disgusting behaviour. This wonderful lady was going about her job and was there to help a member of the community in a time of need."

The man allegedly involved in the incident was on parole at the time of the attack, according to 2GB, and has appeared in Sutherland Local Court on three offences.
