Woman stabbed in arm during violent assault

ON the same weekend police in Sydney targeted  alcohol-related violence, Orange police had their own violent issues to deal with.

However, unlike the major Sydney operation, Operation Unite, police are yet to determine whether alcohol was involved in some of the incidents.

On Friday night, just after 9pm, two men were beaten with an iron bar when a man forced his way into their house in Jubilee Avenue.

Police say both men were beaten around the head and body but refused to be taken to hospital.

Around midnight on Saturday police received a call to Cyprus Street where they found a man aged in his 30s lying in the middle of the road.

An ambulance was called and he was taken to Orange hospital.

The injured man was found to have a broken jaw.

Witnesses told police he was assaulted.

In a particularly violent incident on Saturday night, a 31-year-old man, who had  repeatedly  been asked to leave a licensed premises but kept returning, began fighting police despite several warnings to move on.

Police say he was initially asked to leave a hotel around 11pm due to his level of intoxication, however over the next three hours kept returning to the hotel only to be turned away by security guards.

The man began kicking and swearing at police and when they tried to put him in the back of a police vehicle he became even more violent.

Police used capsicum spray to subdue the man before putting him in the back of a police vehicle.

He was refused police bail overnight and appeared in Orange Local Court yesterday morning. He was granted bail to reappear in Orange Local Court next month.

In a fourth violent incident a 19-year-old woman was stabbed twice in the arm during a domestic argument on Sunday afternoon. The offender allegedly left the scene on foot and ran north towards Woodward Street.

Police are still looking for the alleged offender.
