A woman will face court today after allegedly assaulting two employees at a Lake Macquarie supermarket yesterday.

Shortly after 5pm (Tuesday 24 March 2020), police were called to a supermarket inside a shopping centre at Charlestown, following reports a customer was becoming aggressive towards staff members.

Officers were told the woman was banned from the store after a verbal altercation with staff at the weekend and was asked to leave as per the banning notice.

Police will allege in court that the 52-year-old woman verbally abused and threatened a 46-year-old male staff member before punching him in the chest and spitting in his face.

A 33-year-old male security guard intercepted the woman before she allegedly verbally abused and slapped him.

Officers from Lake Macquarie Police District arrived a short time later and arrested the woman.

She was taken to Belmont Police Station and charged with two counts of common assault and an outstanding arrest warrant.

She was refused bail to face Belmont Local Court today (Wednesday 25 March 2020).
