15-year-old charged after female cop stabbed
A 15-year-old boy has been charged with stabbing an off-duty policewoman in Sydney's inner west.
The officer had stopped to help a distressed teenage girl on Alice Street in Newtown in the early hours of September 6 when she was allegedly confronted by the Punchbowl boy, another 15-year-old male and a 14-year-old girl then stabbed in the torso.
She was treated at the scene by paramedics then taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
The trio were arrested in nearby Marrickville and charged with offences including reckless wounding, drug possession and assault, and the Punchbowl boy now also faces a charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
He has been refused bail and is due to appear at a children's court on Saturday.
The officer has since recovered.
