Thug who battered policewoman even as she pleaded with him to stop is jailed

Kadeer Hussain set upon two police officers in the steets of Handsworth, Birmingham who responded to a 999 call that ended in the vicious bloody attack

A policewoman brutally attacked by a man on the streets of Birmingham tried to flee his savage blows.

She was chased down the street by the man who began attacking her after she and her partner responded to a 999 call.

Kadeer Hussain, who also assaulted the woman’s colleague, was jailed for two years following the attack, reports Birmingham Live.

The 38-year-old, of Handsworth, had previously been found guilty following a trial at Birmingham Crown Court of two charges of assault.

The court heard how the two officers responded to a call to an incident on May 2 last year and went to the street in Handsworth where the defendant lived.

They had been trying to find out the reason for the call when they were approached by Hussain who initially appeared calm.

Richard McConaghy, prosecuting at Birmingham Crown Court added: “Then with no warning whatsoever he punched the male officer in the face knocking him backwards.

“He then immediately punched the female officer in the face causing her nose to start to bleed.

“Hussain then pursued the woman officer, punching her so hard she fell to the floor and then carried on his attack as she lay on the ground

“She pleaded with him to stop as he repeatedly struck her in the face.

“Her colleague then pulled the defendant away and using a spray, although Hussain kept coming towards him.”

He continued to struggle after being handcuffed when police reinforcements arrived and had to be carried to the police van.

Mr McConaghy told the court the male officer suffered some pain and blurred vision.

However the female was more seriously injured with a bruised and swollen cheek, a bloodied nose, a cut to the inside of her mouth and cuts and abrasions to her hands and arms as a result of her falling to the ground.

She also had to have a splint on her arm to help with the pain.

In a statement she said she still suffered flashbacks and could “still see him coming towards me.”

Judge Sarah Buckingham said: “It was a sustained assault upon her. You clearly have a problem with authority.

“A further aggravating feature is that they were two working police officers who should have been able to go about their job in an ordinary way.”

She said she had taken into account that there had been a breakdown in Hussain’s mental health at the time.

Amanda O’Mara, defending, said the defendant had already spent 11 months in custody on remand.

She said it was a spontaneous act by Hussain who had previously had “issues with the police.”
