Mehajer 'Assaults' Sydney TV Reporter

Former Auburn deputy mayor Salim Mehajer has been charged with assaulting a television journalist as he left a Sydney police station for other charges.

The 30-year-old had already been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and larceny over an early-morning argument with a taxi driver outside The Star casino on Sunday.

He was released from Sydney's Day Street Police Station later in the day, when he allegedly slammed the female reporter's hand in the door of a car, and will now face an additional assault charge when he appears in Downing Centre Local Court on April 26.
