A FEMALE cop was stabbed in the face with a pen while arresting a 39-year-old man in North London today.

The officer was among those called to a report of a suspect in the garden of a home in Manor Park Crescent, Edgware, at 10.25am this morning.

Police found a male suspect in the garden, where he stabbed a female PC in the face using a pen, cops said.

The officer was taken to hospital for treatment, but her condition is not thought to be life-threatening.

A 39-year-old man was tasered before being arrested on suspicion of breach of bail in addition to offences against the officer including threats to kill and GBH.

Roy Smith, BCU Commander for North West London, said: “Sadly this is yet another reminder of the risks faced by our police officers as they respond to calls for help from the communities of London.

“The men and women of the Met go to work each day not knowing the dangers they may face.

“They run towards danger to protect others and their everyday heroism is something all Londoners should be proud of.

“This officer was subjected to a vicious and unprovoked attack.

“These are our police officers and they have family and loved ones to return home to.

“They deserve not only our admiration but also support.”
