A police officer has been injured after being knocked over during the attempted stop of a vehicle in Southwark earlier today, Thursday, 14 April.

The Southwark borough officer was on patrol in Dulwich at around 17:35hrs when he identified a vehicle suspected to be involved in a burglary earlier in the day.

The officer requested additional police units to assist in stopping the Land Rover.

A second Southwark response car subsequently located the vehicle on Village Way, SE21, and indicated to the driver to stop, which they did.

A police officer approached the Land Rover on foot, and opened the driver’s door. At this point the vehicle reversed at speed, taking the officer with him, before crashing into parked cars.

The male officer, aged in his 20s, suffered a suspected broken leg, cuts and bruising.

He was taken to a south London hospital where he currently remains. At this stage his injures are not believed to be life-threatening.

The male passenger was arrested at the scene. The driver fled towards the railway tracks at North Dulwich station, and remains outstanding.
