Jamshid Piruz, 34, unemployed has now been sentenced to life at Hove Crown Court for various offences including two counts of attempted grievous bodily harm with intent.

It stems from a call police received on 7 January 2016 to report a man had been seen acting suspiciously in Stagelands, Langley Green.

Officers responded to a 999 call from a member of the public reporting that a man had been acting suspiciously.

Officers located him and he was carrying a hammer and hiding within a confined bin area.

The whole incident was captured on body worn video and show’s Piruz confront officers from where he is hiding.

He makes threats to the officers with the hammer. The cops deployed two Taser shots but it has no impact.

Officers withdrew the Tazer to ensure more space was created between them and the Piruz that they could ensure they could safely arrest the Piruz.

Piruz was subsequently charged with burglary, affray and two counts of attempted grievous bodily harm with intent. He pleaded guilty to these charges on 28 November and was sentenced on 13 January.

Piruz was given two life sentences for the attempted grievous bodily harm offences to run concurrently, for which he will serve a minimum of five years, as well as 9 months for the affray and 6 months for the burglary.

Speaking after the sentencing Detective Constable James Gwynne said: “This was a particularly violent incident and one which highlights the real risk our officers can face when they do their job.

“I would like to commend the arresting officers for their bravery and professionalism in apprehending Piruz.

“Piruz’s conviction would not have come about without the dedicated team of officers working throughout the investigation and I am pleased with the custodial sentence given.”

While assaults on officers do happen, Sussex Police’s commitment is to do everything we can to minimise the occurrence of these incidents and when they do happen, that they are dealt with, with the same level and care and focus that we would a member of the public.

We will not tolerate violence against officers and staff and we are committed to being robust in pursuing the offenders and bringing them to justice.

Published

Met Police assistant commissioner Neil Basu is providing an update outside New Scotland Yard.

He says the suspect, who is yet to be formally identified, is “not currently cooperating” with officers.

He adds police cordons are “likely to be in place for some time” as the investigation continues.

Basu says there “wasn’t a police car in pursuit of the vehicle” prior to it crashing into a security barrier outside Parliament.

He adds: “I believe it was an ambulance on a completely unrelated call.”

Armed officers are currently dealing with an ongoing incident outside of Parliament.

A vehicle was involved in a collision and armed police quickly deployed to the scene.

The vehicle crashed into a crash barrier that is there to protect the Houses of Parliament.

Met Police have confirmed a number of people have been hurt and the male driver has been arrested

Armed police approached the vehicle after it crashed into barriers.

Police quickly cleared the area and put a cordon in place.

The nature of the incident is not yet clear.

An eye witness has told Police Hour that he saw the vehicle driving at speed hit the crash barrier, police did not approach the vehicle until specialist officers arrived.

Specialist officers armed forced the door open and then forced everyone back.

Again almost half an hour after the incident police have further extended the cordon.
