Six arrested after police officer injured in Nuneaton disorder

Six people have been arrested after a police officer suffered an injury to his hand during disorder in Nuneaton.

At 7.16pm last night (Monday 30 July), police responded to a report of around 10 people involved in disorder in Tomkinson Road, Stockingford. When they arrived the offenders fled the scene.

One of those believed to have been involved was located in a nearby car with two other men. As officers tried to persuade him to get out the car the vehicle sped away colliding with a police officer in the process.

A 22-year-old man from Birmingham, believed to be the driver of the car, later presented himself at Nuneaton police station and was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer, obstructing a police officer, and failing to stop after an accident.

Police later arrested two people they believe were in the vehicle at the time. A 16-year-old boy from Nuneaton was arrested on suspicion of affray and a 17-year-old girl from Wem, Shropshire, was arrested on suspicion of burglary in connection with an offence in Wem.

A 16-year-old boy and two 18-year-old men, all from Nuneaton, were also later arrested on suspicion of affray. One of the 18-year-olds was also arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs.

Police investigations into the incident are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident 353 of 30 July 2018. Information can also be provided anonymously by calling independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
