Dramatic footage shows the cop being grabbed by one man who punches him in the face as he repeatedly swings his fists at the officer’s head.
The young cop knocked down onto the grass verge and tries to retrieve his pocket radio as the yobs circle menacingly.
As he lies on the grass, the ring leader is heard to call him a “little b***h”.
He is then seen grappling with his attackers who jab their fingers towards his face and yell insults while filming him.
A female officer comes to his aid as she shouts “get off him” while holding one of the gang back.
But one of the men then steals the officer’s radio and says: “We violate the coppers. We take their radios. You get me?”
Police say two officers were assaulted during the incident on Saturday and needed hospital treatment.
Four men have been arrested, with one charged.
West Yorkshire Police said: “Police are aware of a video circulating on social media of an officer being assaulted in Bradford.
“At 5.54pm on March 5, officers were called to St Leonard’s Road, Girlington following a report of a disturbance involving a large group of individuals.
“Whilst in attendance, two officers were assaulted, sustaining injuries that required hospital treatment.
“Emergency assistance was requested and additional units responded.
“Four men were arrested, and one has now been charged with offences relating to the incident and has been bailed to appear in court later this month.
“Appropriate support has been put in place with regard to the welfare of the officers assaulted, and additional high visibility patrols are in the area to provide reassurance to local residents.
