Call for information – Assault – Leanyer


Northern Territory Police are calling for information after a Transit Safety Officer was assaulted earlier this week.

At 9:20pm on Monday 21 November, the officer had removed three males from bus 198 at a stop on Vanderlin Drive for disorderly behaviour.

One of the males allegedly threw an object at the Transit Officer, striking him in the head and causing a laceration.

The Serious Crime Squad is investigating the incident.

Detective Senior Sergeant Karl Day said “No one deserves to be assaulted as they go about their job.
