A police officer has been hospitalised after being attacked by a group of males who the officer had approached after they were suspected of breaking the Government’s social distancing rules.
Surrey Police confirmed that one of their officers was attacked yesterday evening (21st) in West Byfleet Park.
At around 19:40 hours, the officer responded to a call made to Surrey Police’s control room by a member of the public who reported that a group of males were ignoring the social distancing rules which are intended to help save lives.
The group attacked the single-crewed officer as he attempted to speak to them.
The officer was taken to hospital with injuries to his wrist and head. Three males, one adult and two juveniles were arrested a short time later.
Surrey Police has asked anyone who witnessed the incident to call them via 101 quoting reference PR/45200052505
