Assistant Chief Constable Andy Prophet called assaults on officers “utterly unacceptable”, adding: “Although incidents like these are rare, clearly every single one has a huge effect on people who are simply doing their job – keeping your county safe.
“Assaults on my officers will not be tolerated and anyone doing so will be detained and kept in custody before being put before a court.”
