Casino police will allege that during the early hours of Tuesday (January 15), a 26-year-old Casino man assaulted a woman during a domestic violence dispute at a home in Oak Avenue.

Police visited the property and attempted to arrest the man but he elbowed a senior constable in the face and ran away, they say.

At 6am the man returned to the property and police chased him to a Churchill Street address where he was found hiding under a bed.

While being arrested the man smashed a hole in a wall and threw himself to the ground.

He was taken to Casino Police Station where he was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, assaulting police, escaping police custody and two counts of resisting police.

He was granted strict conditional bail and will appear in Casino Local Court next week.
