TEENAGER pleads guilty after attacking a police officer while being searched. The sixteen-year-old who cannot be named was being handcuffed when he punched a Leicester police officer in the face.
The incident occurred on September 12 in the Ashby area, when police officers detained a sixteen-year-old boy on Burton Road. The case was heard at Leicester Magistrates Court on Monday December 7 and the boy plead guilty to wounding a person.
The police constable suffered from significant facial injuries including a broken septum, broken nose, and torn flesh. She has had one surgery already and is waiting on a further surgery and needed three months off work due to the injuries.
The officer said: “It happened so quickly and I didn’t know what had hit me. I just felt extreme pain and realised I couldn’t see properly.
“It does make me angry that I was out doing my job and I have been attacked in this way.”
The boy will appear in court for sentencing in January.
