Storylines: Growing hope

Hope is a fragile thing in 2021. With the current pandemic and the uncertainty in so many aspects of life, our hope is being shadowed by fear. It is profoundly affecting our humanity.

A police officer was assaulted at Byron Bay over the weekend, while, at Kingscliff, a man was arrested for intimidating police officer and resisting arrest.

At about 4am on Friday (January 5) a senior police officer was assaulted during an unprovoked attack outside Byron Bay Police Station.

He was punched the officer in the face while walking past a 29-year-old Ballina man standing out the front of the police station.

The offender was arrested and charged with assaulting police.

He was refused bail until January 8.

The officer received only minor injuries.

Also on Friday, a 22-year-old Chinderah man was arrested in Sand Street, Kingscliff for making threats towards a police officer the day before.

He also has been bail refused until January 8 to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court.
