A policeman has been stabbed in London after a suspect was seen with a knife in a street in North London.

Fellow police officers gave him first aid and used a tourniquet for his shoulder where he was stabbed and was taken to hospital by ambulance.

The Metropolitan Police said that on Tuesday afternoon a 30-year old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after the attack on Mandeville Road, Enfield.

Assistant Commissioner Matt Jukes said: “This officer has shown immense bravery apprehending a suspect, armed with a knife.

“Visiting him in hospital after he was injured, I was struck by his courage and humility.

“He didn’t want to talk about his own actions but to praise the professionalism of the police medic and other colleagues who provided him with vital first aid and arrested the suspect.”

Asst Commissioner Jukes added: “He was in good spirits and spoke with pride about the work his team do, protecting Londoners. And yesterday, he did just that – stepped forward to put himself between the public and a clearly dangerous individual.

“In doing so, he showed the best of the Met and reminded us of the daily challenges officers face while doing their duty to protect the public.

“The officer and the Met would also like to thank colleagues in the NHS for their care.

“The local community can be reassured that the incident was dealt with swiftly and that a thorough investigation is now under way.”
