Constabulary hits out at 'unacceptable' behaviour
Police have condemned a series of incidents over the weekend, which resulted in four officers being assaulted.
The first occured in Union Mills during the early hours of Saturday morning.
It's understood a man and a woman are being questioned.
Then on Saturday evening, two officers were assaulted in the capital.
A 54-year-old male has been charged, and will appear in court this morning.
Several staff took to social media in the aftermath of the violence:
Kind of thinking we should not have to face getting assaulted at work when we are trying to keep you all safe? #IOMPolice— TweetbeatIOM (@TweetbeatIOM) April 8, 2017
Officers assaulted at two separate incidents last night. Absolutely unacceptable. https://t.co/QtaccQ1ngQ— CC Gary Roberts (@CCGaryRoberts) April 8, 2017
Sergeant Alan Shimmin says it was a difficult few days for the Constabulary.
