AAP logoAAP 16/08/2016

Two female police officers have been assaulted while searching suspects for drugs at a Northern Territory airport.

A 32-year-old woman kneed and hit an officer and struck another "with a tightly wrapped packet of cannabis" while she and her partner were being questioned at Alyangula airport, on Groote Eylandt off the Northern Territory coast.

Police say they found almost 100 grams of cannabis and the pair was arrested and bailed to appear in Darwin Local Court on September 1 charged with drug offences, while the woman was also charged with assaulting police and disorderly behaviour in public.
