AN ATTACKER has been up before the magistrates after assaulting a police officer in an incident in Hereford.

Cameron Brown entered a guilty plea to one count of assaulting a constable in the execution of their duty when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford in November.


The court heard from prosecutor Mark Hambling that the 21-year-old, who was represented at the hearing by defence solicitor Chris Read, had assaulted a police constable who was acting in the execution of his duties in an incident in Hereford on September 22.

Brown, of College Road, Hereford, was handed a nine-month conditional discharge for the offence.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £185 and a £26 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.
