A man has been charged with allegedly assaulting a volunteer working on Labor MP Sabine Winton’s re-election campaign in Perth’s north.
Police say the man was driving on Dundebar Road, in Wanneroo, at 8:00am when he allegedly mounted the kerb as he began to turn on to Wanneroo Road.
It is alleged the man drove towards Ms Winton and a group of people, before getting out of his car and hitting a man in his 50s several times.
A 52-year-old man from Noranda has been charged with careless driving, common assault, disorderly conduct and obstructing police officers.
He is due to appear in the Joondalup Magistrates Court on March 12.
Ms Winton is the the member for Wanneroo, having been elected to the seat in 2017.
In a statement, WA Labor said there had been an “incident” involving a member of the public and the matter was being handled “appropriately” by WA Police.
