Officers assaulted while responding to West Midlands incident

Four police officers were assaulted while responding to an incident in the West Midlands.


Officers were bitten and spat at, according to a police chief who said one was taken to hospital. A woman was arrested during the incident which happened in the North Worcestershire area on Saturday night.

Superintendent Mark Colquhoun said attacks on officers were "never acceptable".

He said on Twitter: "Four of my officers assaulted last night in a single incident. Bitten, pushed, spat on; one requiring hospital treatment.

"Female suspect in custody. Expect charges to follow. It's never acceptable to attack officers who are simply trying to keep the public safe."
