A WINDOW cleaner has been jailed after attacking one of his teenage colleagues and trying to bite a police officer.

Jamie Reid, of Stephenson Walk, in Winsford, appeared at Chester Magistrates Court on June 11 where he pleaded guilty to two assault charges.

The court heard the incident took place February 27 earlier this year when police had to be called to Nun House Drive in the town.

The 24-year-old had turned up where his 18-year-old colleague had been working and grabbed the teenager from behind by his neck.

Reid then held his victim in a headlock and repeatedly punched him in the side of the head while he tried to free himself. Another colleague also attempted to break up the altercation.

A Cheshire Police spokesman said the incident had followed a disagreement between the pair over Reid repeatedly contacting the victim's girlfriend asking for her Snapchat username, which she did not want to provide.

The spokesman added: "After breaking up the fight, Reid went on to pick up the base of a cone and throw it at the victim’s head, causing a small cut.

"Police were called to the scene and Reid then rode off on a bicycle. He was located and arrested a short distance away.

"While he was being detained and arrested, the defendant then tried to bite an officer on the arm - thankfully no injury was caused."

Reid was charged with and admitted assault causing actual bodily harm and assault by beating of an emergency worker.

For these offences, Chester magistrates sentenced Reid to six months in jail and ordered him to pay £150 compensation to his victim and £50 to the officer.

As this incident occurred shortly after Reid was handed a four-month suspended jail term for attacking a woman, the bench added this to his sentence, giving him a total of 10 months.

Reid was also handed a two-year restraining order banning him from contacting his victim, his victim's girlfriend, and from entering specified Winsford addresses.
