PC Connor Pennery has been placed on restricted duties and will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 29 August in connection with the alleged incident in February.

The charge against the 27-year-old relates to clashes between protesters and officers during the march between Whitehall and Piccadilly on 16 February.

Demonstrators wore yellow vests like those worn by protesters in France who staged separate anti-government rallies, including some in Paris on the same day.

Police Launch Appeal Following Assault On Medic During Violent Tommy Robinson Protest

Police Launch Appeal Following Assault On Medic During Violent Tommy Robinson Protest The Metropolitan Police is appealing for the public’s assistance in identifying two individuals after a police medic was assaulted during a violent protest. On Saturday supporters of Stephen Yaxley-Lennon staged a protest dubbed ‘Free Tommy Robinson’ in central London. An associated counter-protest by groups including ‘Stop Tommy Robinson’ and ‘Stand up to Racism’ was also held in the same location. At around 1.30pm a group of demonstrators attempted to storm their way past a police cordon; during this furore, a police medic was pulled to the ground and kicked in the head by a man.

The officers were treated in hospital for "actual bodily harm and common assault injuries", the force said.

In June, James Goddard, one of the leading pro-Brexit yellow vest protesters, was convicted of assaulting a photographer at a march in Manchester.

Last month, he was was handed a suspended prison sentence last month for harassing MP Anna Soubry and racially abusing a police officer.
