Humberside Police have charged a male after two police officers were doused in petrol.
The officers were on patrol when they challenged a man who was acting suspiciously in Anlaby Road, Hull, on Tuesday 27th October.
Radoslaw Baczak, 28, of Mayfield Street, Hull, was charged with going equipped to steal and two counts of assaulting a police officer.
This latest incident comes less than a month after a male was sent to prison for three years after dousing eight police officers with petrol.
28-year-old Justin Jackson, from Ward Close, Basildon, was sentenced last month after the horrific incident on Sunday 5th May 2019.
Officers (Essex Police) had responded to reports that a motorbike was being driven dangerously.
After an 8-mile pursuit, the rider of the motorbike was cornered by officers as he tried to flee in Ward Close, Basildon.
The rider tried to fight with the officers who were forced to deploy their tasers in a bid to overpower the suspect.
But as officers grappled with the suspect, a hostile crowd of between 20-30 people started to taunt and hurl abuse at the officers.
One woman threatened the officers with a hammer before Jackson ran towards them carrying a watering can full of petrol.
As the officers were struggling with the rider of the bike, Jackson doused them with petrol before running away.
As the officers battled against the effects of having petrol thrown in their eyes and mouths, members of the crowd started to shout: ‘light them up’.
Two officers were hospitalised as a result of their injuries as the officers on the scene requested urgent assistance.
In total, around 90 officers swarmed the area to prevent further serious harm to their colleagues.
