Sergeant Laura McCullough, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We have said it numerous times but it’s extremely important members of the public know that it is not okay to abuse police officers.

“It is completely unacceptable for anyone to physically assault or subject our officers to verbal abuse.

“This latest report is sadly just a small example of the vitriol hurled at police and it needs to stop.

“It is not simply part of an officer’s job and will never be tolerated by Nottinghamshire Police.

“We have arrested a suspect in connection with the incident, but our enquiries are still ongoing, so we’d ask anyone that has any information to get in touch with the police on 101, or by calling Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”

Information about the incident can be left by calling 101, quoting incident 245 of June 23.
