Boy, 14, released after attacks on police

By Jamie Brassington | Walsall | Crime | Published:

Police have released a 14-year-old boy on bail after a Police Community Support Officer was hit across the head with a rock and a police officer was punched.

The teenager was arrested by officers on Thursday on suspicion of assault and theft of a motor vehicle.

He was detained shortly after a PCSO had been hit with a rock in Walsall, after she had found a stolen motorbike dumped in Turnstone Road, in Blakenhall.

The suspect had escaped over nearby fields and was seen getting into a van but officers picked him up not far away on Slacky Lane.

While being detained, a police officer was punched in the stomach. The teenager has since been questioned by police.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "He's been released on police bail with conditions."
