TWO police officers are returning to work this week after being injured when a car was “intentionally” driven at them in Camden Town.
The hunt for the driver of a white 4×4 which hit the pair on December 29 is continuing.
The male officers had tried to speak to a man close to Camden Market at about 2.30am after reports he had a knife, before he got into the car and drove at them.
The vehicle fled towards Swiss Cottage. The officers were taken to hospital but their injuries were not life-threatening.
Chief Superintendent Raj Kohli said: “This man drove a car towards the officers without any consideration for what the outcome might be.”
No arrests have been made and anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 866/29Dec, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
