Rich Cooke, chair of West Midlands Police Federation, shared news of the incident on social media.

He said: "Two officers assaulted by a 13-year-old girl in Oldbury overnight who was being dispersed from a supermarket where she’d been with a gang causing antisocial behaviour.

"Punched and bitten.

"Violent youth we are dealing with. I don’t think many truly understand the level.
