Two teenagers arrested in connection with this incident have been charged and are due to appear at court at the end of October.

A third teenager was referred to the Youth Outcomes Panel and dealt with by an out of court police disposal.

Three teenagers who were arrested in connection with an incident in Harrogate which left two PCSOs seriously injured have been released on conditional bail pending further enquires.

The incident happened at around 7pm on Friday evening (1 April 2022), when two PCSOs from Harrogate’s Neighbourhood Policing Team attended McDonald’s on Cambridge Street following reports that a group of teenagers had entered the restaurant.

The group had already been banned and given a Dispersal Notice not to enter the area due to their anti-social behaviour earlier in the evening.

The group refused to leave when asked by the PCSOs and an altercation took place.

During the incident, one of the PCSOs sustained a suspected broken nose and the other suffered tissue damage to the cheek. Both were taken to hospital where they received treatment for their injuries.
