Greater Manchester Police have released photos of the injury suffered by the 21-year-old PC after she was bitten by a man in Rochdale who was reported as disobeying the lockdown rules.
GMP said the officers just tried to explain to the man that he should not be going to other people’s homes following the government’s guidelines to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic.
While trying to engage with the man, two officers were punched and the 21-year-old officer was then seriously bitten.
She attended hospital following the incident on Thursday evening before being discharged to recover at home.
Christopher Hill, 29, of no fixed abode, has been charged with two counts of assault by beating of an emergency worker and one count of criminal damage.
