A 20-year-old has been arrested in Longsight, Manchester after a police officer was bitten on the face.
A spokesperson for the force said that the police officer was put in a headlock by his attacker before the male bit him on the face.
The officer was treated in hospital for his injuries before being released to continue to recover from his injuries at home.
This latest incident comes 24 hours after the same force charged a 17-year-old male after he assaulted four officers, biting two of them so hard that they also required treatment in hospital.
One of the officers, a 69-year-old special constable, sustained severe injuries to his arm in the attack, whilst a second officer was bit on the leg.
A 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with four counts of assault of an emergency worker, including a section 47 assault.
He has been remanded in custody and will appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on Monday 15 February 2021.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?

Lock him up for a few years. On his 18th, give him a present and move him to the big boys’ jail. Try biting a few inmates in there and see how he gets on.
