A Sydney woman has been charged with assaulting a television reporter outside a court.

The woman, reportedly the estranged wife of a man arrested during raids by the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad, was filmed lashing out at media near Bankstown Local Court on Friday and shoving a camera into Sky News journalist Amy Greenbank.

Footage taken immediately after the incident showed a trickle of blood running down Ms Greenbank's face and neck.

She later took to Twitter to reassure well-wishers, posting a smiling picture of her patched-up eyebrow with the caption: "Eventful day but I'm fine. Thanks for all your well wishes!"

NSW Police on Saturday said a 31-year-old woman arrived at Bankstown Police Station shortly after midday.

She has been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and is due to front Bankstown Local Court on December 14.
