Hampshire Police have charged a Portsmouth man after two paramedics were assaulted last night (29th April).
48-Year-Old Tony Andrews, of Forth Street, Portsmouth, has been charged with two counts of assault by beating of an emergency worker.
Response team officers were called to Fratton Way at around 14:15 hours yesterday after the medics were forced to make a radio call to their control for urgent assistance.
It is alleged that Andrews had ‘punched and kicked’ the paramedics, causing both of them injuries. The medics did not require hospital treatment.
Andrews was arrested at the scene and taken to a local police station. He is due to appear at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court on 28th May.
