Officer assaulted after disturbance in Nottingham

A police officer was assaulted as she helped to detain a suspect.

The officer was approached from behind and shoved to the floor by a suspect who had come running up behind her.

Moments before, at around 1.20am this morning (Friday), she and other colleagues had been called to reports of a disturbance in Manston Mews, Radford.

After falling to the floor she sustained minor arm, shoulder and leg injuries.

Two men, aged 43 and 41, were both arrested on suspicion of using threatening, abusive and insulting words or behaviour.

The older man was also arrested on suspicion of assaulting an emergency worker.

Both remain in custody as investigations continue.

Sergeant James Rimmington, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This kind of violence against people who are simply doing their job is utterly unacceptable.

“Officers pull on their uniforms and head out on patrol every day with the same objective in mind – to protect the public from harm and return home in the same condition.

“They simply do not deserve to be assaulted and abused during the course of their duties. We now have two people in custody in connection with this incident and investigations are ongoing.”
