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.
