A MAN is due to appear in court today charged with a number of offences after an officer was injured during a collision in Harlow yesterday, Tuesday 13 July.
Shortly before 12.30pm yesterday, an officer attempted to stop a car in First Avenue, Harlow.
During the incident, he was struck by a car, which then left the scene.
Thankfully, the officer’s injuries are not life-threatening or life changing. He was taken to hospital for treatment and is being supported by colleagues.
Mohammed Rahman, 24, of Lawrence Avenue, in Sawbridgeworth, has been charged with dangerous driving, assault of an emergency worker, ABH, obstructing a constable in the execution of their duty, failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic collision, driving without insurance and driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
He will appear in Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court today.
The Police have a difficult job as it is without some stupid fool trying to evade them and in the process knocking them down. Only a few months back an officer was dragged down the road and killed, 10 years behind bars, we don't need people like that in our world, it could have been murder.
