The Metropolitan Police has released some body-worn camera footage of the moment when a male repeatedly stabbed a police officer in the face with a pen.
Officers had been called to Manor Park Crescent, Edgware, at around 10:25hrs on Sunday, 16 August 2020 after Romanian national, Adrian Popa, was spotted in residential gardens.
At the time, Popa had bail conditions which prevented him from being in the area.
After trying to run away from officers, he confronted an officer who had caught up with him before violently attacking her.
Full story, including the details of the sentence that was handed down to Popa, are in the video below:
