When a wrestle followed, the male officers was allegedly punched, kicked in the face and head and choked while the female officer was also punched.

The officers set off capsicum spray before calling for urgent back-up and retreating from the home.

When extra police arrived, the mother and son eventually surrendered.

The two constables where treated for minor injuries.

The woman was charged with assault and will front court on Thursday while her son, who was charged with using an offensive weapon and assaulting police, was refused bail.
