Man charged after woman found injured on Mount Austin footpath

Charges have been laid after the discovery of an injured woman in a Mount Austin street following an alleged domestic violence attack on Wednesday.

Emergency services were called to Bolger Avenue just after 12am, when it was reported a woman had been hurt.

When they arrived, they discovered a 41-year-old woman with head injuries laying on the footpath in the street.

Paramedics treated the woman at the scene before taking her to the Wagga Rural Referral Hospital for further treatment of her injuries, which were not life-threatening, police said.

A crime scene was established and investigations by police led to the arrest of a 31-year-old man at a Bolger Avenue home.

Police allege the man, who is known to the victim, assaulted the woman inside the home.

He has been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, intimidation and malicious damage.

He will face Wagga Local Court on Thursday.
