Jail for Carlisle man who assaulted two officers and man on street

A man has been jailed for assaulting a policewoman, community support officer and member of the public.

John Thomas Allan, 28, of Brookside Place, Raffles, Carlisle, left Club 35 on Lowther Street when a man saw him pull a suspicious-looking plastic bag out of the back of his trousers.

He followed Allan into Scotch Street before grabbing him by the collar. Allan reacted angrily, biting his victim.

While being arrested, Allan hit a PCSO in the face before headbutting a policewoman.

In a statement to police, Allan said he had little recollection of the incident which happened in August and that he bit the member of the public in self-defence.

After he pleaded guilty at Carlisle Magistrates’ Court, District Judge Chalk sentenced Allan to 90 days in prison for the assaults and a further 28 days for breaching a curfew.
