A 74-year-old man has been charged with assault after an altercation in Parramatta yesterday.
The man, allegedly armed with a pole, entered a law firm in Hunter Street where he attempted to hit a 55-year-old male worker. It’s alleged he then grabbed a nearby kettle and poured hot water on the employee.
Police said the two men previously knew each other.
Officers from Parramatta Local Area Command arrived at the scene and arrested the armed man. He was taken to Parramatta police station and charged with two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and intent to commit indictable offence.
The employee was taken to hospital and treated for cuts to his face and a minor burn to his chest.
The man was granted conditional bail and will appear at Parramatta Local Court on March 16, 2015. –Erin Kenneally
