A man has been charged after a police officer was coughed at by a man claiming to have Coronavirus while responding to an incident in Piccadilly Gardens.
Mateusz Rejewski (05/03/1987), of no fixed abode, has been charged with one count of common assault on an emergency service worker and one count of breaching a dispersal notice.
He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 28 April 2020.
Police were responding to an incident in Piccadilly Gardens on the afternoon of Thursday 26 March 2020 and detained a man for breaching a section 35 dispersal order.
The man then proceeded to cough at the detaining officer while claiming he had got coronavirus.
The officer has since been self-isolating as a precaution.
