Three police officers have been headbutted and spat on during an arrest in Sydney's north.

A 35-year-old man was leaving Chatswood train station about 5pm on Friday when he allegedly refused to present his ticket and spat at a rail employee.

Nearby police were alerted and spoke to the man, who they say became aggressive and swore.

A struggle ensued, in which the man headbutted one officer several times and spat on two others before he was subdued with pepper spray.

He has been charged with numerous offences including assaulting police and was expected to face Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday.
