SYDNEY: Australian police said they were investigating a 71-year-old man for the alleged assault of a photographer in Sydney in the early hours of Tuesday (Feb 27). The accuser identified the man as Taylor Swift’s father.

“Police have been told a 71-year-old man allegedly assaulted a 51-year-old man at Neutral Bay Wharf about 2.30am (11.30pm, Singapore time), before leaving the location,” police spokeswoman Alicia McCumstie told AFP.

“The younger man reported the incident and inquiries are now underway by officers attached to North Shore Police Area Command.”

The alleged victim, Ben McDonald, told AFP the man was Swift’s dad, Scott Swift.

McDonald said he had been photographing the US pop icon on a “super yacht” in Sydney Harbour after the last of her four gigs in the city.

McDonald alleges Swift’s security put an umbrella in his face to prevent him from taking photographs of Taylor Swift, who was walking down the jetty to a waiting vehicle.
