Two men have been charged following separate incidents where officers were reportedly attacked over the weekend.
An officer was allegedly punched and pushed against some barriers just before 6.30 am on Saturday, November 27, when attending reports that a man was trying to break into a car in Trent Boulevard, Lady Bay.
“It is appalling when we hear reports of officers being subject to hate or abuse.”
– Nottinghamshire Police Chief Inspector Fifi Gulam-Husen
Monty Clark, aged 22, of Derby Road, Lenton, has since been charged with assaulting an emergency worker and released on bail to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on January 4, 2022.
In a separate incident, it was reported an officer have been kicked and another spat at when resolving reports of a man being racially abusive towards a group of people.
The incident took place just after 11.55 pm on Sunday, November 28 in Radford Road, Hyson Green.
Jake Sykes, of no fixed address, has since been charged with two counts of assaulting an emergency worker.
The 28-year-old was also charged with possessing a class B drug after officers recovered a quantity of cannabis.
He has been bailed and his next court appearance is yet to be confirmed.
Nottinghamshire Police Chief Inspector Fifi Gulam-Husen said: “It is appalling when we hear reports of officers being subject to hate or abuse.”
He added: “It is not part of the job for them to expect to come face-to-face with that.”
“As we have shown time and time again, we will take a robust and zero-tolerance approach whenever such behaviour is reported to us.”
He said the two officers in the incident were unhurt and are fully supported.
