A man has been extradited and charged in relation to a brawl at Charmhaven last month in which a man had part of his ear bitten off.
About 10pm on Saturday 12 November 2016, emergency services were called to a licensed premise on the Pacific Highway, Charmhaven following reports of people brawling.
When police arrived, a group of people allegedly became aggressive towards police. However, were subdued with O/C spray.
As a result of the incident, five people were treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance Paramedics including a 28-year-old man who had the upper part of his ear bitten off during the incident. The man was taken to Wyong Hospital for further treatment.
A 44-year-old female security guard, who attempted to intervene in the brawl, was also taken to Wyong Hospital after suffering injuries to her ribs and ankle.
Detectives from Tuggerah Lakes Local Area Command commenced inquiries, and on 24 November 2016 a warrant was issued for a 26-year-old man.
He was subsequently arrested in Virginia, Northern Territory, and yesterday, was extradited to NSW.
He was taken to Botany Bay Police Station where he was charged with two counts of assault occasioning grievous bodily harm, four counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and one count of affray.
He was refused bail to appear at Waverley Local Court today (Friday 2 December 2016).
Four other males had previously been charged by police in relation to the incident.
