Perth: cop knocked out

March 25: A policeman was kicked unconscious while trying to arrest a man at an out of control party in Balga, in the north of Perth.

Riot squad police, officers on horseback and the police helicopter were called to Coniston Way, about 11pm after neighbours reported hundreds of youths fighting in the street and throwing bottles at each other.

A 37 year old officer from the Mirrabooka police station was approached from behind while trying to arrest a man and kicked to the head, rendering him unconscious. The officer was released from hospital after scans.

Three people from the party have been charged, but no one has been arrested over the attack on the officer.

Police attended 10 parties across WA on Saturday night.
