A WOMAN has appeared in court charged with a number of offences after she allegedly rubbed a used sanitary towel across a hospital door and exposed herself to an NHS member of staff.
Cornelia Azariah, 31, of no fixed address, became aggressive after being told she could not be seen by A&E at Royal Brompton Hospital, Chelsea, London on March 30.
She reportedly screamed abuse at a security guard and exposed herself as he tried to get her to leave. Shortly after, she returned with a soiled sanitary pad and rubbed it across one of the doors, while telling staff “there’s your coronavirus”.
Westminster Magistrates Court also heard the accused threatened PC Aleisha Dixon in the back of a police van, and shouted rascist remarks.
The defendant appeared in court without legal representation and refused to enter pleas for two counts of assault by beating of an emergency worker, exposure, racially aggravated harassment and criminal damage.
Azariah was remanded in custody to appear at Isleworth Crown Court on April 29.
