A police officer was “seriously injured” after responding to an attack on a school bus in Plymouth.
The female officer was attacked after she and a colleague attended the scene outside Widewell Primary School in Estover on Friday (June 21) morning.
It followed reports a man had thrown a concrete block through the window of a bus carrying school children.
Upon arrival, a man attempted to strangle and punch the officer.
She suffered a serious facial injury and was subsequently taken to Derriford Hospital, where she underwent CT scans and medical treatment.
Following the attack, a 54-year-old man from Plymouth was arrested on suspicion of assault, GBH and criminal damage.
