Hero police officer injured after being 'rammed' by car as he tried to arrest suspects

A POLICE officer has been injured after being rammed by a car as he tried to arrest suspects.

The hero cop was rushed to hospital with a leg injury after last night's shocking incident in Kilburn, north west London.

Horrified witnesses saw the injured officer being taken away on a stretcher on Lowfield Road.

The Met officer had tried to stopped a blue BMW driving suspiciously around 10.25pm last night.

Cops parked their cars to stop the BMW driving off, but the driver attempted to reverse away from them.

The police officer who left his car to approach the driver became trapped between the BMW and a police car.


The officer was taken to hospital with leg injuries to his leg which are not believed to be life threatening.

The driver, a 24 year-old man, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted GBH, dangerous driving and driving without insurance.

A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of GBH, possession of Class B drugs, possession of an offensive weapon and obstructing police.

A 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of breach of a Criminal Behaviour Order and possession of a pointed/bladed article after running off.

The Met is hunting a fourth man who ran off in the direction of Hemstal Road.

It comes after two cops were injured and hospitalised after being attacked in a “shocking assault” while trying to arrest a suspect in Blackburn.

The officers were punched and suffered head and body injuries after they rushed to the scene at 2.10pm yesterday.


Photos showed a section of the road in Kilburn cordoned off with officers and multiple police cars at the scene.

Footage showed a black BMW X5 unmarked Met Police armed response car next to a cordon.

One eyewitness tweeted: "Police officer was caught between two cars after they stopped a the car.

"Three suspects were in the car. Two were caught. The last one legged it. Not sure if the caught him."

Chief Superintendent Raj Kohli said: "Incidents such as this highlight that officers never know what they are going to face during the course of their shift.

"My thoughts are with my injured colleague and his family.

“Thankfully, he has been discharged from hospital and is resting up at home. Ongoing support will also be provided via the Op Hampshire team.

"While no officer should face violence at work, I want to commend all the officers involved for their bravery as they carried out their duties.

“The investigation into this matter is ongoing and I would appeal for anyone who witnessed this incident to come forward.

"I would also ask anyone in and around Netherwood Street, Lowfield Road, Palmerston Road and Hemstal Road to check any dashcam or doorbell footage they may have captured from this incident.”
