A man who bit a police officer’s arm in an attempt to evade arrest in Rochdale has been jailed for 12 months.

Daniel Chipchase aged 41 of Cheviot Close, Middleton was sentenced at Minshull Street Crown Court for assault on a police officer.

The officer was taken to hospital due to how severe his injuries were. He has since been discharged.

Police Constable Daniella Capper of GMP’s Rochdale District said: “As police officers we do not come to work and expect to be assaulted. The officer involved was subject to an unprovoked barbaric assault from Chipchase. We hope this result sends a clear message that this type of behaviour towards our officers will not be tolerated on the streets of Manchester and is totally unacceptable.”
