Police Searching For Woman Accused Of Bashing Elderly Couple

Police are searching for a woman who allegedly bashed an elderly couple in NSW's Hunter Valley region on Monday.

The woman allegedly began hurling verbal abuse at a man and a woman -- aged 84 and 86 -- who were putting rubbish in the bin on Guerney Street in Scone.

Police said the woman, who was not known to the victims, then punched the elderly man to the ground and kicked him in the head and body.

The elderly woman was also pushed to the ground before the accused attacker fled the scene.

The couple were taken to Maitland Hospital in a stable condition but suffered cuts, grazes and bruises as a result of the incident.

It's believed the perpetrator may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Police are urging anyone with information about the incident or dash cam footage to contact them.
