A man who bit a hole in a police officer’s ear as he struggled to evade arrest has been jailed.
The male police constable required surgery after he was attacked by Daniel Ward, 26, in Runcorn, Cheshire, on December 14.
Ward bit the officer in Bridge Street as he was being detained on suspicion of assault and threatened to bite his colleagues in custody after he was eventually restrained.
Ward, of Norton Hill, later admitted wounding with intent, resisting arrest and a public order offence.
He also pleaded guilty to offences of robbery and possessing an offensive weapon in a public place after two teenagers had their bicycles stolen at knifepoint in a subway last January.
Ward was sentenced for all the offences at Chester Crown Court to Monday and jailed for 13 years, with an extended licence period of four years.
