Police officer injured in Powis Street, Woolwich

A shoplifter is reported to have attacked a police officer today in Woolwich during an incident on Powis Street.

Rumours have spread of a man running around with a machete which is untrue. What is reported is a shoplifter tried to evade arrest and injured an officer.

The area is well covered by CCTV. In addition, anyone with information can call 101.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    I think everyone should have to go through a staffed checkout not only will it help to cut down on losses from stores it will also create much needed retail jobs.

    The self service checkouts and hand held scanners help to increase the amout of shop lifting in stores. Which does not help when so many retailers are struggling to survive.

    I hope the Police Officer makes a full recovery.

      How bizarre that the Met didn’t make an official statement about this…..police officer stabbed in the face and neck with some scissors in broad daylight with dozens of witnesses isn’t worthy of comment??? Does this happen that often that it doesn’t warrant comment?? Hopefully the officer received recognition for their efforts behind the scenes and the lack of an official statement was due to his wishes, would have been much easier to let the guy walk and who could have blamed him?
