A man suspected of injuring a police officer has been arrested by police this morning (Tuesday, June 19, 2012).
Freddie Field, aged 27, of Portsmouth, was detained by Hampshire Constabulary officers at an address in the Fratton Way area of Southsea.
Mr Field is in police custody for questioning on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH) and burglary.
Hampshire Constabulary would like to thank members of the public and the media for their assistance with the search for Mr Field.
Mr Field was wanted on suspicion of being involved with a collision involving a car and a female police constable, who was on a cycle patrol in Sedgley Close, Southsea shortlybefore 9.30pm on Thursday, May 24, 2012.
The officer was taken to hospital to be treated for injuries that were not life-threatening.
