We received a report of a man acting suspiciously in the Nottingham Road area of Eastwood at around 11.15pm on Friday 6 July 2018.

Two officers attended and were attacked with a glass bottle as they led a man away from the scene and one officer was kicked in the stomach.

One officer suffered injuries to his arm and the other officer suffered injuries to her head.  

Lee Wright, of Moon Crescent in Eastwood was arrested and subsequently charged with grievous bodily harm with intent, assault by beating, affray and criminal damage.

The 34-year-old is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates' Court tomorrow (Monday 9 July).
