Police Officer Stabbed in Arrest

MERSEYSIDE Police Deputy Chief Constable Carl Foulkes has spoken out about the risks faced by officers on the street after an Officer was stabbed in Huyton, on Tuesday, 13 September 2016. At around 11.20am, 4 Officers, on foot patrol, spotted a man on Westmorland Road, who they recognised as being wanted on suspicion of rape. They immediately attempted to arrest the Offender who then stabbed 1 of the Officers, a 30 year old constable, several times before attempting to run away. The 2nd Officer chased and apprehended the 18 year old man, from Huyton, on suspicion of rape; following an incident on Slater Street, Liverpool City Centre, on 18 June 2016; and assault of a Police Constable. He was then taken to a Police Station, on Merseyside, where he was interviewed. The injured Officer, who sustained stab wounds to his back, was taken to Hospital for treatment. Deputy Chief Constable Carl Foulkes said:- "This incident highlights once again the dangers Officers face every single day, putting themselves in harm's way to deal with dangerous situations. The very nature of the job means Officers go into challenging situations and acknowledge the risks they face. Despite this, Officers put themselves on the front line protecting our communities every day and any assault on an Officer serves as a stark reminder of the very real dangers that Officers face to keep us all safe day in, day out. After seeing their colleague stabbed, 3 Officers continued to attempt to arrest the man and successfully detained him and I would like to commend their bravery and that of the officer who has been injured."

Anyone with any information on the incident is asked to contact Knowsley CID on:- 0151 777 6225. You can also call the 101 number or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111.
