Two officers were sitting in a marked police vehicle in Maytree Close, Chemsley Wood, at around 23:15 hours.
They were catching up on some paperwork while waiting for their vehicle to be recovered as it had a flat tyre.
A brick was thrown through the rear window, hitting the police officer in the head.
The officer was treated for head injuries and is now at home, recovering from the incident.
Police have said that the suspect was dressed in dark clothing and was riding a pedal bike.
West Midlands Police have asked anyone who might have some information regarding the incident to contact them via Live Chat on their website or call them on 101, quoting crime reference number 20SH/29119U/21.
