Police have arrested a suspect after a woman was assaulted and three officers were kicked and punched.
Officers were called to a hotel in Maid Marian Way, Nottingham, at around 1am today (Saturday 29 October 2022) after reports of concern for a woman’s safety.
After arriving at the scene, police attempted to detain a man on suspicion of assaulting the woman but he became aggressive.
The man kicked out at two officers and then punched a third officer to the head.
A 39-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of ABH, three assaults on an emergency worker, resisting arrest and criminal damage. He remains in police custody.
Detective Sergeant Lisa Jones, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This sort of violence will never be tolerated by Nottinghamshire Police.
“Domestic violence is taken seriously by the force.
“In this incident, police officers were trying to protect a victim and take positive action when numerous officers were subjected to an extremely violent assault.
“Assaults on police officers are totally unacceptable. Officers are members of the community like anyone else, who have family members and colleagues who are concerned for their wellbeing.
“They pull on the uniform each day to protect and serve the public, so it is always saddening to hear when they are assaulted while doing their job to keep people safe.
“Any assaults on emergency workers are treated very seriously and, as we have repeatedly shown, we will always take robust action against anyone involved in this sort of behaviour.”
Any information relating to this incident can be reported by calling the police on 101, quoting incident 41 of 29 October 2022, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
