A police officer was bitten on the hand during a struggle to arrest a suspect in Nottinghamshire.
On Tuesday 8th February at 23:10 hours, Nottinghamshire Police were called to an address in Kent Close, Worksop, after reports that a man was breaching his bail conditions.
The male officer was bitten on the hand during a struggle as they tried to detain the 28-year-old man.
The suspect was eventually subdued with irritant spray and restrained.
The suspect was arrested on suspicion of breaching bail conditions, assaulting a police officer with intent to resist arrest and possession of three bladed articles, after three knives were found in a bag.
He was taken to hospital for assessment and later taken into custody.
Inspector Neil Bellamy, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“Our officers work hard to keep the public safe and should not have to endure violent, abusive and threatening behaviour in the workplace. We take assaults on our officers extremely seriously and will always take the strongest possible action those responsible.”
