Three people have been arrested after officers were spat at and kicked during incidents in Derbyshire over the last week.
The first incident took place in Sadler Gate, Derby, at 2.50pm on Sunday 22 January when officers were assaulted by a man who was arguing with door staff.
After being repeatedly asked to leave, the man, who is in his 20s, spat at an officer and was arrested. He was then further arrested for a racially aggravated public order offence after using racist language in custody. He has been released on bail pending further enquiries.
In a separate incident, around 12 hours later, officers responded to reports of an assault in Godfrey Drive in Ilkeston just after 2pm.
They found the suspect, a man in his 30s, who kicked and pushed officers during his arrest.
He has been released on bail while enquiries are made into the allegations of assault and criminal damage – as well as the assault of the officer.
Finally, a report was made to officers about a woman being drunk and disorderly at 11.30pm on Monday 23 January in Brighton Road, Derby.
When officers arrived, they attempted to arrest the woman who hit out at one and attempted to kick another officer. The female, in her 20s, also used racist language when she arrived at custody.
She was detained on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly, two assaults on emergency workers and racially aggravated public order, she has been bailed while enquiries continue.
