WARNING – GRAPHIC IMAGES: Muhammad Rodwan, 56, is seen carrying out his terrifying assault before being shot with a Taser gun by PC Stuart Outten an the incident in Leyton, east London last August
Shocking bodycam footage shows the moment a man was tasered after carrying out a horrifying machete attack on a police officer.
Muhammad Rodwan, 56, was found guilty today of repeatedly knifing PC Stuart Outten after he was pulled over in Leyton, east London, in August last year.
Despite suffering suffered multiple stab wounds and skull fractures, PC Outten, 29, was bravely able to use his Taser and disable Rodwan.
Footage of the incident has now been released showing the frenzied assault on the officer who was left seriously injured.
Rodwan was ordered to “stop resisting” as two officers attempted to restrain him while he sat in the front seat of his van.
But instead of giving up, Rodwan rained numerous blows down on his victim’s head with a machete leaving him bloodied.
Commander for the North East Basic Command Unit, Detective Chief Superintendent Richard Tucker, said: “This frenzied, brutal attack on PC Outten is a stark reminder of the dangers London’s officers face and confront every day to keep the public safe and tackle crime.
“Officers should be able to go about their work, protecting the public, without fear of abuse or attack.
“Unfortunately that is not the reality, and officers are regularly the victims of unacceptable physical assaults whilst on duty, but this is something we should never accept as ‘part of the job.'”
