Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS - By ELIS SAND­FORD

A PO­LICE of­fi­cer was bit­ten in a vi­o­lent at­tack in Coven­try.

The sick­en­ing in­ci­dent was be­lieved to have taken place near to Tile Hill li­brary in Jar­dine Cres­cent be­fore mid­night on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 9, as two of­fi­cers were set upon by a “vi­o­lent male”.

Shock­ingly, the man bit one of the of­fi­cers on the arm, and kicked out at the other.

The first of­fi­cer also suf­fered a dis­lo­cated shoul­der.

Af­ter be­ing checked over at hos­pi­tal, the of­fi­cers were quickly back to work.

But the of­fi­cer who was bit­ten now faces the pos­si­bil­ity of six months’ worth of med­i­ca­tion, due to the risk of in­fec­tion.

Mean­while, the at­tacker ended up in po­lice cus­tody. The in­ci­dent was Tweeted about by West Mid­lands Po­lice.
