Man on parole allegedly bites police officer, pulls her hair out
A MAN who allegedly assaulted a female police officer was out on parole when the violent attack occurred.

The 48-year-old man was taken to St George Hospital under police guard before being taken to St George Police Station.
He has been charged with assault police officer in execution of duty cause actual bodily harm, assault officer in execution of duty, and resist officer in execution of duty.
