A 28-year-old Kurmond man who refused to sign in at Coles North Richmond yesterday – Sunday - midday has been charged with assault after an altercation with a security guard tasked with reminding people to sign in, and he was also issued with an infringement notice for failing to comply with the Public Health Order.
There is a $1000 fine for failing to sign in when visiting a store, and $500 for not wearing a mask.
A 26-year-old North Richmond woman who was with the man has been handed an infringement notice too.
One of them was not wearing a mask and both refused to sign into the store.
Hawkesbury Police officers quickly tracked down the couple to a North Richmond address.
The man will be appearing in Windsor Local Court at a later date on the assault charge.
The security guard was not seriously hurt in the ordeal, say Police.
