Two arrested following assault on police officers

Thames Valley Police has arrested two men in connection with the assault of two police officers on duty in Hungerford on Saturday night.

The men, aged 45 and 50, were arrested in Andover, Hampshire, during the early hours of Sunday morning.

The 45-year-old was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent, whilst the other was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. Both men, who are from Hampshire remain in police custody.

The officers had responded to an incident at The Gibbet in Combe Road, following a report of a single vehicle road traffic collision involving a white coloured Nissan van which had landed in a ditch.

Whilst in the process of dealing with the incident, which happened shortly before 9pm, the officers were assaulted by a man from the vehicle who made off from the scene.

One of the officers sustained a laceration to the head as well as a hand injury. The other received bruising to the head. Both officers, a man and a woman, were taken to Great Western Hospital, Swindon where they were treated for their injuries. They have since been released and are recovering at home.
