A ‘man’ has been jailed for what some might consider to be an inadequate amount of time after a vile and ‘disgusting attack’ on two police officers – hitting one repeatedly over the head with a glass bottle and leaving her with a fractured skull.
Lee Wright, 34, of Moon Crescent, Eastwood, was sent down for two years and eight months when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday, September 21, 2018.
Wright pleaded guilty to one count of inflicting grievous bodily harm and one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
According to the NottinghamPost.com The incident happened on the night of July 6, 2018 in Mansfield Road in Eastwood.
Officers were called to a report from a concerned member of the public about a male in his back garden who had then gone into gardens in Mansfield Road.
The court heard that PCs David Hikin and Anne Bloomfield arrived to find Wright sitting on top of a garage.
The officers asked Wright to come down.
But they had to take Wright through the house in order to reach their police vehicle which parked at the front of the property.
As the group got to the front door, Wright started to become agitated. He ran back into the property before locking himself in the downstairs toilet.
After a few minutes he came out and officers once again led him towards the front door of the property.
As they were almost out, Wright hit PC Hikin on the arm before going back through the property followed by PC Bloomfield. PC Hikin was also kicked in the stomach by Wright.
Wright armed himself with a glass bottle and swung it at PC Bloomfield, hitting her in the head. He then swung it at her again hitting her to the forehead and knocking her to the floor.
PC Bloomfield suffered a skull fracture and hairline fracture of her eye socket as a result of the assault and a cut to her forehead with swelling and bruising.
She also suffered a black eye, with swelling and bruising, lumps to her head and a lump on her hand, injuries to her elbows and bruising to her hand.
Additional officers arrived on scene and spoke to Wright through a bedroom window.
Wright picked up a coping stone from the roof and threatened to throw it at officers who were in the garden.
