A 17-year-old girl has allegedly attacked two police officers, hitting one with a cast iron wheel and biting the other.

Police say they were called to the girl's Port Macquarie home on Saturday morning to break up a fight between her and a 21-year-old man.

Officers separated the two in the backyard but they turned on them, with the girl allegedly using a "decorative garden wheel" made of cast iron to hit a female constable.

She then bit a male officer on the forearm when he tried help his colleague.

The girl has been charged with arming herself with intent to commit an offence, wounding a police officer, assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and malicious damage.

The man is accused of hindering police and resisting arrest.

A court date for the pair is yet to be set.

The female officer received stitches for a cut to her arm and the male officer was treated for a wound to his arm.
