A female police officer was kicked in the face and another officer was spat at “directly in the face” during an arrest in Flintshire on Sunday. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police have said the alleged assaults took place in Mold on Sunday night. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Following the arrest, officers seized a machete, a number of boxes of Diazepam and cannabis from the man’s home. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In a post on social media, a South Flintshire neighbourhood police team spokesperson said: “Two officers assaulted in Mold last night.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“A female officer was kicked to the face and a male officer was spat at directly in the face, disgusting.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Male arrested and was subsequently found to have dealer bags of cannabis on him.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“A search of his home revealed the following…”[photo of machete and drugs] ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Coughs or spits directed at key workers – or threats to do so – can be considered crimes if they were meant to harm or cause fear, with criminals charged with common assault. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In England and Wales, common assault can lead to six months in prison – and attacks against emergency workers going about their duties carry a maximum sentence of two years. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
