Six people were arrested and charged in less than 24 hours when two incidents occurred in Shearman Drive, Goonellabah, yesterday (March 4).

Police allege that around midday a group of five adults approached a couple out the front of their house, threatening them with violence and trying to incite the 31-year-old male victim to fight.

Fearing for their safety and that of their small children, the couple, retreated inside the house and called the police.

In the meantime, police say damage was done to a metal front gate of the property.

Police from Richmond Local Area Command arrested three women and two men, who were taken to Lismore Police Station and charged with a range of offences including affray, malicious damage, threaten violence, stalk, intimidate and cause fear.

Later that evening police returned to Shearman Drive in response to reports of a group of people fighting and drinking in the park.

As they were dispersing the group, police allege a 56-year-old man swore at them, threatened to ‘king hit’ them, and refused to comply with the direction.

They allege the man then tried to punch one of the officers.
