A teenage boy has been charged with five offences after two special constables were assaulted in Saffron Walden.

The officers were assaulted while arresting a youth on Monday, September 17, 2012 in connection with a burglary and an assault on a member of the public.

A 32-year-old officer is still in hospital and was undergoing surgery on an ankle broken in three places. The other officer, aged 43, was allowed home after hospital treatment for a hand injury but he is expected to require surgery later.

A 15-year-old boy from Saffron Walden has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm, causing actual bodily harm, assault by beating, handling stolen goods and breaching an interim Anti-Social Behaviour Order.

He appeared at Colchester Youth Court on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 and was released on bail prior to the next court date.
