Three officers injured after incident at Nottinghamshire pub

Three officers were left with injuries on their arms and legs after attempting to arrest a suspect who had allegedly stolen a car and caused damage at a public house.

After being alerted to an ongoing incident in Grove Street, Retford, shortly before 7.30 am, on Monday (22 May), response cops were quick to get to the scene and attempted to diffuse the situation.

While trying to arrest a woman three officers were injured and received injuries to their arms and legs while trying to restrain a suspect and place them inside of a police vehicle.

A nearby car and window were also damaged.

Josie Connor, aged 32, of Elkesley, Retford, has since been charged with driving a motor vehicle taken without the owner’s consent, two counts of criminal damage, three counts of assault by beating of an emergency worker, assault, and driving while disqualified.

Connor appeared before magistrates in Nottingham on Thursday (25 May) and was remanded in custody.

She is next due to appear on 1 June.

Sergeant Mark Walker, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “When our officers respond to incidents, they shouldn’t be left with bite marks, cuts and bruises – they don’t put on a uniform to be assaulted, which is why we will always do all we can to arrest those responsible.

“This is an ongoing investigation but I am pleased we’ve been able to put a suspect up before the courts in relation to the incident.”
