Policemen hurt arresting colleague
North Wales Police graphic
Two North Wales Police officers have been injured in a struggle as they attempted to arrest a colleague for alleged breach of bail conditions.

It is reported that the arrested officer had been suspended from duty last month after allegations of a domestic incident in Towyn, near Rhyl.

The 38-year-old is now being questioned for allegedly breaking bail conditions imposed by a court.

The injuries sustained by the arresting officers are not thought to be serious.

"An officer was arrested in connection with an alleged breach of bail conditions," a force spokesman said.

"In the course of the arrest, two police officers were injured.

"He has been detained at Colwyn Bay police station and the matter is being investigated."

The spokesman refused to give the suspended officer's name or comment on why he was under suspension.
