WATCH: Police attacked by knifeman in Farnborough

knife attack Farnborough

Footage has revealed the moment a man attacked three Hampshire police officers with a knife. 

PC Jon Garland, PC Jack Alexander and PC Mark Allison were called to a domestic incident at an address in Farnborough to protect those inside last July. 

Once they arrived, PC Allison and PC Alexander were confronted by a man with a large butchers knife. 

Within seconds the man had stabbed PC Allison in the shoulder and PC Alexander in the hand.

However, despite the severity of their injuries the two officers did what they could to restrain and disarm the man, knowing the danger he posed to others if he had got away.

"His partner was inside there with their newborn child, so it was imperative that we got inside as quickly as possible, in order to make sure that they were okay, because we believe they were at risk.", PC Allison explained.

Hampshire Police say thanks to their "incredible bravery," an armed and dangerous man who thought nothing of stabbing two officers is behind bars.

The trio have been awarded for their bravery at the Chief Constable's Awards in Netley. 

"Our priority was getting him in handcuffs so that we secured him and he wasn't able to harm anybody. 

"He had a couple of other knives down his trousers, so he was well armed so we need to remove that threat.", Allison said. 

PC Garland meanwhile reacted immediately to pull another colleague out of the reach of the man.

He then drew his Taser and stopped the attacker as he stood, knife raised, over another officer.

Hampshire Police went on to say: "There is no doubt that the courageous actions of these officers prevented anyone else getting hurt and ensured the man responsible was jailed."

Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney presented the awards.

 She said: “It is with immense pride that I present these awards to our officers who have truly shown great courage and professionalism when faced with some truly terrible crimes.

“Every day our officers are working hard to make our communities safer and these examples show the lengths they are willing to go to in order to protect those they have promised to serve, often putting themselves in harm’s way without a second thought.

“From incredible displays of strength, to personal sacrifices to get the job done and running into danger when others are going in the opposite direction, it is clear these officers have gone above and beyond.

She added: “Officers should not have to face the threat of violence when trying to do their job, but sadly this is not always the reality.

“Once again we have seen how our officers have refused to give up when confronted with such unacceptable aggression.

“It is important for me to celebrate these achievements and show people across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight the exceptional work our officers are doing day in and day out to fight crime and protect the vulnerable.”
