Man facing court after MP assaulted
A MAN has been charged with various offences after a Tory MP was injured when challenging an alleged bus shelter vandal.
Ivans Karanovs, 20, will appear in court in Peterborough today, police said.
Backbencher Stewart Jackson said he tried to make a citizen’s arrest on Saturday after seeing a man smash the glass with a bottle. However the alleged culprit fled after kicking him in the chest.
Mr Jackson, who had been shopping with his wife and daughter in his Peterborough constituency, posted about the incident on Twitter.
“Had set to with violent thug kicking in bus shelter in Broadway & suffered kick in side for pains,” he wrote.
He later reported“I was walking past and couldn’t just ignore it…
“That’s when I put my shopping down and went on up and said, ‘You can’t do that.”’
