A woman has been charged with assault after a dispute over a container.

At about 9.30pm on Thursday, April 4 a 32-year-old Werrington woman invited her neighbour, a 37-year-old Werrington woman over for a cigarette.

The 37-year-old agreed, they had a cigarette and the 37-year-old left later in the evening.

At about 7am the next day, the 37-year-old woman was walking on the street and located a container that she recognised from her neighbour’s property from the night before.

The 37-year-old attended the 32-year-old’s house to return it, but she was not home.

At about 11.40am the 37-year-old woman was at Werrington Railway Station when she saw the 32-year-old and handed her the container.

It is alleged the 32-year-old has accused the 37-year-old of stealing the container and has pushed her into the fence and repeatedly punched her in the face.

The 37-year-old left the station and contacted Police.

Police located the 32-year-old woman a short time later and placed her under arrest.

She was charged and will appear in Penrith Local Court on Thursday, May 9.
