A SECOND police officer has been attacked in Bromsgrove after another wild Saturday night in the town.

Posting on social media police said an officer was punched while trying to deal with a drunk man.

They said that officer is ok but incidents like this should never happen.

They added the male was introduced to "our fragrance ‘Pava’, handcuffs and a trip to our hotel aka custody."

Have-a-go heroes at a Bromsgrove pub were recently thanked by a police chief after saving another officer from serious injury in a shocking assault.

The Advertiser reported several days ago that James Bateman, 23, was jailed for almost six months for strangling the policeman at the Golden Lion pub in Charford on Saturday, February 8.

Bar staff and customers helped pull Bateman off the policeman so other officers could restrain him.

The officer did not require hospital treatment but was cared for by ambulance staff for injuries to his throat and face.

Chief inspector Edward Hancox, of West Mercia Police, said: "Whilst we go into the role of a police officer knowing there is a risk of violence the reality of incidents like this never fails to shock but on this occasion it was countered by the positive reminder that the community will support their local officers.”
