Four police officers are hurt after an incident at Victoria’s tent city, located on the city’s court house lawn.
Three of them were treated in hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
Constable Matt Rutherford with Victoria Police says officers were responding to what they believed to have been a domestic assault.
“When those officers attempted to intervene, they were met by a highly combative man who began to assault them.”
Constable Matt Rutherford with Victoria Police says additional officers were called in to help.
“A taser was then deployed to gain control of the man, he was then taken into custody without further incident.”
Police used a taser to gain control of the man, who is known to police and was taken into custody.
He’s scheduled to appear in court tomorrow.
Rutherford says the investigation is ongoing.
