We recently issued a photo of a man who was wanted on recall to prison, and thanks to your help he’s now back behind bars.
The 30-year-old, who is originally from Acocks Green, was arrested in a Coventry garden yesterday afternoon (19 May) after we launched an appeal to trace him.
He was further arrested by our officers on suspicion of assaulting two paramedics on Saturday 16 May.
The paramedics had been called to help an unconscious man when they were attacked in Stratford Street. One of the paramedics was punched in the face and the work tablet they use to update patient records was also smashed.
The incident saw the team taken off the frontline for a number of hours and prevented them from helping patients in need of emergency care.
Although the man we arrested remains under investigation for this attack, he’s already been returned to prison to serve out the remainder of his sentence after breaching his licence conditions by failing to meet his probation officer and breaching his curfew.
We’d just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who shares our appeals, and contacts us with information. You really are making a difference and helping to make the West Midlands a safer place for everyone who lives and works in the region.
