Grimsby man charged with assaulting a police sergeant

He was charged with a total of nine offences

A 23-year-old man from Grimsby has been charged with nine offences including assaulting a police sergeant and witness intimidation.

Humberside Police previously put out an appeal for Liam Milligan, who at the time they said was wanted by the force in connection with an attempted murder, robbery with a weapon, threats to kill and theft.

Milligan, of no fixed abode, was charged with nine offences by police and remanded overnight on on Tuesday evening.

He then appeared at Grimsby Magistrates’ Court during the morning of Wednesday, October 23 on the following charges:

  • Assaulting an emergency worker (police sergeant)
  • Two counts of robbery
  • Three counts of carrying a knife in public
  • Wounding with intent to do GBH
  • Witness intimidation (witness of the wounding offence)
  • Possession of drugs (cannabis)

No plea was given during the hearing and Milligan was remanded in custody to appear at Grimsby Crown Court on November 25.

When police issued the wanted appeal for Milligan, they also said that a number of addresses in North East Lincolnshire, believed to be connected to him, were checked.

Four people found at four separate properties were arrested on suspicion of various offences.
