Police have charged a man with affray, criminal damage, actual bodily harm and breaching a non-molestation order after he was arrested during a roads policing operation in Harwich.

Nitesh Patel, 42, of Main Road, Harwich, appeared at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court on Saturday, and was remanded in custody to appear at court next month.

Officers asked a man to provide a roadside breath test during a roads policing operation in Main Road around 7.30am on Friday.

Police then received information that the man had allegedly assaulted a couple and damaged items inside an address nearby at 7.10am. He was taken to custody and later charged.

The operation was a success with another man dealt with by the roadside for failing to stop for police and driving with no insurance or MOT.
