Jailed after off duty officers tackle armed man in restaurant incident 

Published

on

A man who wielded a screwdriver at customers in a restaurant is behind bars for ten months after off-duty Surrey Police officers unarmed him.

Roads Policing officer PC Ian Nash and his wife Detective Constable Gemma Nash from Staines CID were enjoying a meal at Raj Cuisine in The Broadway, Woodham, on February 28 when the incident happened.

They heard screams from the bar area of the restaurant at 10.15pm where Nicholas James Wilkins had assaulted a customer with a screwdriver.

The duo leapt to action believing he had a knife and together unarmed the 46-year-old.

Head of Operations on the Northern Division Superintendent Chris Moon praised their actions.

“This story typifies the commitment our officers have to keeping the public safe, be it on or off-duty,” he said.

“They put themselves in harm’s way believing this man had a knife, without any of the normal protective equipment frontline officers have.”

PC Nash said: “We were having a meal with our backs turned to the bar area and we heard someone shout ‘drop the knife’.

“That’s a sentence you can’t ignore – you feel compelled to get up and do something to prevent anyone coming to any harm.

“We had no idea of how serious it was going to be. It’s just instinct; you just do what you’ve got to do.”

DC Nash added: “There were a couple of people there holding him. I could see he had a handle of something and I thought it was a knife too.

“I was thinking ‘this could go horribly wrong – we have to quickly get that knife off him’.

“It was quite handy having Ian there. I knew that he knew what to do and was conflict trained.

“I was repeatedly shouting for the man to drop it and Ian was physically trying to get it off him.

“Once we had him down outside we called 999, that was when I realised it was a long screwdriver.”

Wilkins was ordered to pay the victim of the assault £150 in compensation when he was sentenced at Redhill Magistrates Court on Monday (March 2), where he had pleaded guilty to common assault and possession of an offensive weapon.

He was also guilty of breaching bail conditions not to be drunk in a public place, or without reasonable excuse, cause harassment, alarm and distress to members of the public, which were imposed on him at Staines Magistrates Court on January 21.

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
