‘Officers attended and a 34-year-old man from Portsmouth has been arrested on suspicion of common assault of an emergency worker and common assault.’

It comes just a day after a 41-year-old man from Havant was arrested after assaulting a security guard in Lidl, in Leigh Park.

The man was then reported to have bitten a police officer and kicked and punched another after they arrived on the scene. It is alleged three further officers were kicked and spat on.

The South Central Ambulance Service has also been contacted for more information by The News.
