Hero cop is stabbed by knifeman after being called to disturbance in village in north London

A HERO cop has been stabbed by a knifeman after being called to a disturbance in a village in North London.

The officer was “extremely lucky” not to have more serious injuries after the attack in Harefield.

Met Police confirmed cops were called to Dovedale Close at 2.44am last night to reports of a “disturbance”.

Officers could hear noises coming from inside the premises when they were then confronted by the knifeman.

The man threatened officers before taking the blade and stabbing one of them in the arm.

Cops used a taser to subdue the suspect who was then detained.

A 34-year-old man was arrested for affray and assault on an emergency service worker causing grievous bodily harm (GBH).

Police said the man remains in custody as of 6pm on Sunday.

Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Bowen said: “These officers were courageous and extremely lucky that they were able to walk away from this incident with minimal injuries.

“This is an example of the dangers that our officers face, whilst doing their role as police officers.

“We wish the officer a speedy recovery.”

In a statement, the Hillingdon Police said: “A man opened the door, armed with a knife and was threatening officers.

“The man then stabbed one of the male officers in the arm.Taser was deployed on the man and he was detained.

“The officer was taken to hospital, where he was assessed and his stab wound was treated. His injuries are not life threatening.

“A 34-year-old man was arrested for assault on an emergency service worker causing GBH and affray.”

The incident comes as the campaign for tougher sentences for those who kill police officers is gathering momentum.

It was sparked by the tragic death of PC Andrew Harper, who was dragged to his death behind a car of fleeing quad bike thieves in Stanford Dingley, Berkshire last August.

Lissie Harper, 29, had been married to the 28-year-old office for four weeks before he was killed and is now leading the campaign for Harper’s Law.

She is campaigning for a change to the law, which would see a mandatory life sentence for those found guilty of killing an emergency worker.
