Back on the beat: Police officers hit by car

'This man drove a car towards the officers without any consideration for what the outcome might be'

10 January, 2020 — By Samantha Booth

TWO police officers are returning to work this week after being injured when a car was “intentionally” driven at them in Camden Town.

The hunt for the driver of a white 4×4 which hit the pair on December 29 is continuing.

The male officers had tried to speak to a man close to Camden Market at about 2.30am after reports he had a knife, before he got into the car and drove at them.

The vehicle fled towards Swiss Cottage. The officers were ­taken to hospital but their injuries were not life-threatening.

Chief Superintendent Raj Kohli said: “This man drove a car towards the officers without any consideration for what the outcome might be.”

No arrests have been made and anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 866/29Dec, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
