A naked man has allegedly punched a female police officer in the face, causing serious injury, as officers sought to subdue him at Junee in NSW's Riverina region.

Police say officers responded to reports of a man running around and acting irrationally at about 7pm on Friday and found a naked 18-year-old in a paddock.

As police attempted to speak to him, he allegedly rushed at them, punching a female senior constable in the face before being subdued.

The officer suffered a fractured hard roof palate to her mouth and was taken to Wagga Rural Referral Hospital then to Canberra Hospital for surgery.

The man has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm to a police officer on duty, assaulting an officer in execution of duty, and resisting arrest.

He was refused bail to appear at Wagga Wagga Bail Court on Saturday.
