On Wednesday, 4 November, officers from the West End Central Proactive Partnership Team were on duty patrolling in Soho along Old Compton Street, W1, in preparation for bars and pubs closing at 10pm prior to national Covid restrictions coming into effect from midnight.
PC Jack Greaves, investigating, said: “This was both a cowardly and dangerous action that could have had much more serious consequences for the officer. Thankfully she was not seriously harmed. I am confident that someone will know who this person is and I would ask them to get in touch with us as soon as possible. Likewise, if you recognise yourself in this image do the right thing now and come forward.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101, quoting CAD 5926/04Nov, or Crimestoppers, 100 per cent anonymously,on 0800 555 111.
