Mohammed Labead, 19, of Kinghorn Road, Norwich, today appeared at Norwich Crown Court after being charged with three counts of assault and one count of inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent on January 19 this year.
Labead admitted inflicting grievous bodily harm on the officer as well as a count of assault by beating in relation to the female officer.
He admitted another assault by beating on the same night but also pleaded not guilty to another assault which he was told would lie on file.
Judge Anthony Bate adjourned sentence until July 4 to allow a pre-sentence report to be carried out.
Following the attack in January Norfolk’s Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Nick Dean said: “We cannot underestimate what any officer might face on any day. Policing, by its very nature, is spontaneous and unpredictable although fortunately serious injury to officers is rare.”
Those sentiments were echoed by Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner Stephen Bett who said it demonstrates what a dangerous job police do.
