Girls, 13 and 16 arrested after officer punched in the face with BRICK as other officers bit and spat in terrifying attack
TWO teenage girls were arrested after a police officer was hit in the face with a brick in a savage attack.
The cop was approaching three girls, who were threatening to damage cars at Mansfield, along with two other officers when the horror unfolded.
One officer was spit on and another was bitten on the arm as they desperately tried to subdue the teens.
A third suffered a fractured cheekbone, nose and eye socket after being attacked with a brick just after 7 a.m. today.
A 16-year-old girl was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and remains in detention.
Police are also questioning a 13-year-old girl suspected of assaulting a rescuer.
Detective Sergeant Matt Dumbrell of Nottinghamshire Police said: “This is a terrible incident which has led to the assault of three policemen. This led to a fractured cheekbone, nose and eye socket, as well as a deep cut to the face that required stitches.
“Police patrols have been stepped up to reassure the local community and I urge residents to keep us informed of any issues. “
The officer also praised the cops for their bravery, but said being assaulted shouldn’t be “part of the cops’ job”.
He added, “Police officers go out every day to protect the public from damage. They have the right to go about their business without being assaulted and mistreated.
