A 38-year-old woman has been charged with assaulting a police officer after throwing a used sanitary towel at a detective constable in Peterborough.
On Thursday 4th February, the woman was arrested at her home address, in connection with a burglary and the theft of a bicycle.
She was then further arrested following an incident in custody whereby a detective had a used sanitary towel thrown at them.
On Saturday 6th February, she appeared at Huntingdon Magistrates’ Court after she was charged with assaulting an emergency worker and theft.
The woman denied the assault but admitted the theft and breach of a community order.
She was sentenced to 10 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months and must complete a 20-day rehabilitation activity requirement (RAR).
The female has been bailed to appear at the same court for a trial on 4th March in regards to the assault.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.

10 weeks for theft, so out in 5. As a thief, she should be locked up for at least a year on the first offence. Given she is 38 and likes to throw used sanitary towels at people, it is odds on that she already has a record.
Had she been locked up upon her first conviction and then had the sentences doubled, as an absolute minimum thereafter, she would probably still be inside, the officer would not have suffered this degrading attack and the theft victim would still have a bicycle.
Instead, she will be out by the end of March and back out there stealing.
Her sentence was SUSPENDED, all she has to do is attend a naughty girl’s class for 20 days for a few hours a time at the most!!!
What do you have to do to serve time inside with some of these magistrates for heaven’s sake?
