A 22-year-old man has been charged with three counts of actual bodily harm and a 30-year-old man was charged with two counts of assaulting an emergency worker and possession of class B.

They were remanded to appear before Birmingham Magistrates Court today (26 Oct).

Three officers were taken to hospital to be treated for injuries which were thankfully not serious.

Detective Superintendent Jim Munro, from Birmingham Local Policing Area, said: “Our officers are on the front-line every minute of every day – often putting their own safety at risk – to help and protect the public in their time of need.

“Attacks on our staff while carrying out their daily duties are unacceptable and will never be tolerated.”
