Police have charged a 25-year-old man after he assaulted three security guards at Nepean Hospital.

At 3.30am yesterday, the accused was conveyed to the hospital by ambulance and was placed in a waiting room after triage.

A short time later he became aggressive, yelling obscenities and making demands.

It is alleged the Dean Park man was pacing up and down the halls, yelling and banging his chest with clenched fists.

Security officers attempted to restrain him, but as a result three of them were assaulted.

Police were notified and attended the scene where he was arrested and charged with three counts of ‘assault’ and one count of ‘affray’.

He was refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court on Monday, July 29.
