He allegedly drove off towards Swiss Cottage without stopping. The police constables were taken to hospital but their injuries were not life-threatening or life-changing, and both have since been discharged.

Investigators are trying to trace the driver, who is described as a black man, around 6ft tall, with a beard, and wearing black clothing and a beanie hat. The Passengers in the car are described as two black females.


One was wearing black high-heeled boots, a black leather jacket, and red skirt, while the other had her hair in a ponytail and was wearing dark clothing, including a long skirt and black boots.

No arrests have been made so far.


Raj Kohli, of the Metropolitan Police, said: “Our officers go to work every day to protect Londoners and the many visitors to the capital.

“Last night, two of these officers attempted to carry out a routine stop after concerns were raised by a member of the public that a man had a knife.

“This man drove a car towards the officers without any consideration for what the outcome might be.

“It is only a matter of luck that neither officer suffered even more serious injuries than those they sustained.

“I would urge anyone with information to come forward and speak with us.”
