A 32-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of assaulting an emergency worker. Sergeant Laura McCullough, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We have said it numerous times but it’s extremely important members of the public know that it is not okay to abuse police officers.”

“It is completely unacceptable for anyone to physically assault or subject our officers to verbal abuse. These latest reports are sadly just a small example of the vitriol hurled at police and it needs to stop.”

Sergeant McCullough added: “It is not simply part of an officer’s job and will never be tolerated by Nottinghamshire Police. “We have arrested two suspects in connection with both of these incidents, but our inquiries are still ongoing, so we’d ask anyone that has any information to get in touch with the police on 101, or by calling Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Information about the incident in Sutton-in-Ashfield can be left by calling 101 and then quoting incident 245 of 23 June 2022. To leave information for the St Ann’s incident please quote incident 959 of 23 June 2022 instead.
