It is a shocking moment when a police officer is tied to the floor and paper is sprayed through a job in the street.
The 25-year-old assailant was arrested just before 6pm on Lincoln Road, Peterborough, before the officer was seen covering his eyes on the floor.
Police have confirmed that a 25-year-old man attacked the officer with pepper spray before he hit the ground.
The officer can be seen lying on the ground – when the assailant lifts his leg in the air and tries to push it towards the road.
He then approached the policeman – before another officer came in and asked him to challenge the man.
A third officer can then be seen chasing another man trying to escape in a car before returning to help keep the assailant on the floor.
Meanwhile, two passersby are trying to help the pepper spray policeman – who was struggling to get up on his hands and knees.
Moments later, the street was filled with sirens and blue and white lights as emergency services arrived at the scene and stopped traffic.
Earlier, the assailant tried to free himself from the officer’s grip – but other police officers arrived at the scene and arrested him on the sidewalk.
He was then picked up by six officers on the back of a policeman.
