Byron police probe MP allegations

By Alex Easton

BYRON BAY police are investigating claims a NSW MP assaulted a woman.

NSW Police Media yesterday confirmed a 56-year-old woman had complained to Byron Bay police on January 31 this year that a 55-year-old man, whom she knew, had assaulted her on June 2 last year.

Sydney media yesterday claimed the man was a Member of the NSW Parliament.

Police declined to identify the man complained about by the woman. There was no suggestion at this stage that any Northern Rivers MP is involved.

The Police Media spokeswoman said Byron Bay detectives were still the sole agency investigating the claims.

She said it had taken several months for key witnesses to come forward and, as a result of their statements, more witnesses would be interviewed. No charges have been laid.
