Sheffield man who assaulted two police officers is jailed
A Sheffield man who racially abused and assaulted two police officers has been jailed.
Ismail Jama, 34, was stopped by police after he was seen acting inappropriately on Spital Hill, Burngreave, on April 23.
Officers from Sheffield North East Neighbourhood Team responded to reports for the man’s safety and were confronted by an aggressive Jama at the scene.
As they attempted to arrest him, he spat in their faces and hurled racially abusive threats at them, which he was also arrested for.
He was charged and remanded into custody the following day.
Jama, of Pye Bank Road, Burngreave, pleaded guilty to two counts of assaulting an emergency worker and was jailed for 24 weeks at Sheffield Crown Court on June 21.
He was also convicted of racially aggravated public order offences and ordered to pay £50 in compensation to both officers.
