Man jailed for assaulting police officers

A 27-year-old foreign man was jailed for five months on Wednesday for assaulting and injuring two police officers last November.

The man was found guilty of assault, causing actual bodily harm, and resisting arrest, police said.

The incident happened on November 16 when the defendant was informed by the immigration service that he would be deported.

After the attack, the two officers visited the hospital where they were treated for abrasions to their arms.
