A Police Officer was stabbed yesterday in yet another shocking example of violence towards the Police in London.
Officers were called after reports of a man with a knife and they then identified a suspect.
After being pursued on foot a Police Officer was then stabbed in the arm, with a taser deployed and the man arrested on suspicion of GBH.
The Officer was taken to hospital for treatment but his condition is not life-threatening.
It is yet another example of the Police coming under attack in London. There have been repeated incidents in recent months during violent protests in Westminster, in Brixton, Hackney and most recently in White City where Officers suffered broken bones.
North West BCU Commander Roy Smith said: “This is another example of the dangers our officers face on a daily basis as they go about their duty protecting the people of London.
“Knowing that there were reports of a man in possession of a knife, this police constable and his colleagues ran to challenge and apprehend him – these are truly brave actions.
“I have visited the injured officer in hospital and thankfully he should make a full recovery from his injury.”
