A 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of two counts of assault and two counts of assault by beating of an emergency worker.

He remains in custody as enquiries continue.

Detective Sergeant Nicole Milner, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Once again this is another incident where our officers have been subject to violence and abuse while out doing their job and keeping the public safe.

“Not one but two officers have been subject to violence in this incident which as we have said time and time again is totally unacceptable.

“Thankfully, none of the officers sustained any lasting injuries but this type of behaviour can also impact our staff emotionally and that is why as we have continuously stated we will take any reports of this nature extremely seriously and will never be tolerated by the force.”

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 637 of 13 February 2022.
