A man has pleaded guilty to assaulting two police officers during shop raids in Wolverhampton.

Walsall Magistrates' Court

Dale Byrne also admitted three counts of theft alongside two charges of assault on a police officer at Walsall Magistrates' Court yesterday.

The 42-year-old's two charges of burglary were dismissed but he also admitted to being in an enclosed area unlawfully.

This comes after officers arrived at Costcutter on Penn Road, in Penn, at 8.30pm on May 30 , to reports of a raid.

They were then alerted to an attempted theft at the Strictly Liquor store across the road.

Byrne, of Falklands Crescent, Wolverhampton, has been released on conditional bail and will return to magistrates' court on July 4 to be sentenced.

Another man, aged 53, was also arrested at the time but he has been bailed under investigation until June 27.
