Woman and police officer injured during assaults in Derby

Posted on 18th June 2014

Police in Derby are appealing for witnesses to two assaults linked to an incident in the George Cross pub on Boyer Street in Derby.

Officers were called to the pub just after midnight on Sunday June 15 to a report that a woman had been seriously injured. They found a 23-year-old Spondon woman, who has been allegedly hit by a pool ball, suffering from a fractured jaw.

A 30-year-old man, a 23-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man, who are all from Derby, were arrested and questioned in connection with the incident.  The 30-year-old man was released without charge but the two 23-year-olds have been released on police bail while further inquiries are made.

An officer, who attended the scene, was also injured.  He chased a suspect down Drewry Lane and was allegedly pushed from behind.  He fell and broke his arm.

Anyone who was in the pub that night or who saw the incident in Drewry Lane should contact PC Mick Donegan on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
