Police officers bitten and kicked responding to domestic incident

A police officer was bitten on the leg and another kicked in the leg after responding to a domestic incident.

A man resisted arrest after officers were called to a disturbance at an address in Mitchell Close, Bulwell.

As they were putting him in handcuffs they were assaulted, causing pain and discomfort.

It’s alleged the suspect continued to be aggressive and abusive towards the officers and spat inside the police van.

A 40-year-old man was detained on suspicion of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, assault by beating of a police constable and criminal damage following the disturbance which was reported shortly after 11.15pm on Tuesday (7 December 2021).

The injured officers are being supported by Nottinghamshire Police.

Detective Sergeant Robert Palethorpe said: “Police officers do not come to work to be assaulted by people while conducting their duties and protecting the public from harm.

“Thankfully both officers were not seriously injured and are receiving support, however this sort of behaviour is unacceptable.

“As the force has repeatedly demonstrated, it takes a zero-tolerance approach to reports of this nature and will take robust action against anyone who behaves in the manner.”
