A female paramedic was hit to the head while responding to the incident.

St John Ambulance Operation Manager Craig Garraway said she had to spend a night in hospital with a suspected concussion.

“She’s doing really well…chatting to her over Teams, her spirits are good,” Mr Garraway said..

He said assaulting a frontline worker is disgusting behaviour.

“These frontline workers are there trying to assist and help people and this is what they get for it.”

“It does make it hard to get people to come and work here.”

The 23-year-old has been remanded in custody to face the Alice Springs Local Court today.
