Four men have been arrested and one has been charged following an assault of a police officer in Girlington that was captured on camera and circulated on social media.

At 5.54pm on Saturday, officers were called to St Leonard’s Road, Girlington following a report of a disturbance involving a large group of individuals.

Whilst in attendance, two officers were assaulted, sustaining injuries that required hospital treatment.

Emergency assistance was requested and additional units responded.

Four men were arrested, and one has now been charged with offences relating to the incident and has been bailed to appear in court later this month.

Appropriate support has been put in place with regard to the welfare of the officers assaulted, and additional high visibility patrols are in the area to provide reassurance to local residents.

Chief Inspector Bash Anwar of Bradford District Police, said: “West Yorkshire Police condemns any violence towards its staff and all such incidents will be investigated thoroughly.

“We will seek to prosecute anyone who displays violence towards an emergency worker as they work to protect the public and keep our communities safe.”
