Just after 2am on Sunday morning, Police attended Sainsbury’s, on London Road, after damage was caused to the building.

West Midlands Ambulance Service attended and took the injured man to hospital for treatment.

During the incident, an officer was assaulted, but fortunately not injured.

He has since been released on conditional police bail while the investigation continues.


Officers searching for a man in connection with an incident on Nash Peake Street recently have made an arrest.

Police were called to the address in Tunstall on 28 September. A man refused to leave the address and was spoken to by specially-trained negotiators after he barricaded himself inside.

Later that day, the man managed to escape by getting through to an empty adjoining building.

Officers have been carrying out a number of enquiries and have been searching addresses in the area as part of their efforts to locate the suspect.

Yesterday, a 36-year-old man, of no-fixed-address, was arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled drug of class B, theft, burglary and assault by beating.

He remains in custody at this time while our investigation continues.
