A man has been arrested after he smashed his way through the front counter screen at Dagenham Police Station before being subdued with a taser.
At around 22:37hrs on Thursday, 19th November, a man entered the front office at Dagenham police station.
He became increasingly aggressive and agitated after speaking to station staff and began trying to break the front counter screen.
He was very quickly arrested after managing to climb through and was detained in a corridor.
The man has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage.
LAS attended as a precaution after police taser was deployed and discharged.
There were no reports of any other injuries.
The front counter remains closed while damage is repaired.
This latest incident comes only eight days after a male was arrested by officers after ramming the front office of Edmonton Police station before dousing the area in petrol.
After ploughing through the front office, a 45-year-old man then exited the vehicle before dousing it with petrol. The male then allegedly tried to set fire to the car.
Officers quickly arrived on the scene and ran towards the male who was surrounded by fire, before tackling him to the ground.
Following the incident in Dagenham, the Met has advised any LBBD residents wishing to speak to police in person are advised to go to their nearest alternative police station, call 101, or submit a report online at met.police.uk.
