POLICE officers were kicked, punched, head-butted and spat at by a group of men during late-night disorder in Scarborough.
The assaults happened at about 3.30am on Sunday, in St Thomas Street, near the Opera House Casino and Boleyns’ nightclub.
North Yorkshire Police said the officers, who were not seriously hurt, were assisted by door staff from Boleyns.
Two men from Scarborough, aged 18 and 20, were arrested on suspicion of assaulting police.
Four more Scarborough men, aged 19 to 24, were arrested in connection with the incident.
Inspector Andy Short said the violence was wholly unacceptable and would not be tolerated. “Those who commit such assaults can expect to dealt with robustly and face the consequences of their actions,” he said.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to phone 101.
