Police officer who assaulted teenage black boy, 15, and black male cyclist sacked


PC Declan Jones was recorded on CCTV pulling a 44-year-old black cyclist to the ground before attacking him. Less than 24-hours later he was filmed kicking and punching a 15-year-old black boy after wrongly accusing him of possessing drugs.

At a trial in June last year, the court was shown CCTV of Jones pulling innocent Michael Rose, 44, off his bicycle in the middle of the street in Aston, Birmingham, on April 20 last year.

While Mr Rose was held down by a female officer, Jones punched him three times in the back while appearing to bang his head on the bonnet of the patrol car.

The next day Jones was caught on camera kicking a 15-year-old, who has not been named for legal reasons, while on the ground.

Footage shows him grappling with the youngster in Newton the day after the attack on Mr Rose.

Jones claimed he had used reasonable force in self-defence but he was found guilty of using unlawful force after a five-day trial at Coventry Magistrates’ Court.

He was cleared of a third count of assault, following another incident in April, during which he was filmed saying he did ‘not believe’ in Covid.

He is due to be sentenced at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
