Ms Lydall is said to have suffered a bleeding lip and was collected by her mother, Alice, following the incident. Alice told the outlet that her daughter had been punched in the head “several times”.
A spokesperson for New South Wales Police said that one woman, 33, had been arrested and was assisting officers with their inquiries at Day Street Police Station.
Ms Lydall was previously at the heart of a scandal surrounding a TV advertisement for tyre company Ultra Tune. The advert was BDSM-themed and drew criticism from some that it objectified women.
Many outraged viewers reported to the Advertising Standards Bureau (ASB). One person said at the time, according to Mail Australia: “It started with two woman wearing bondage/dominatrix rubber outfits getting out of their car, cracking whips, then walking into an Ultra Tune store where the male attendant looks them up and down appreciatively”.
Another complaint said: “It was incredibly inappropriate and sexual."
The tyre company denied that the line used, “We’re into rubber,” objectified women.
