Police officer stabbed fighting off knifeman who threatened a baby

Two police officers have been honoured for their bravery after fighting a crazed knifeman who was threatening a three-month old baby.

One officer PC Jack Collins, 34, was stabbed in the head and shoulder by the suspect who then swiped at his colleague PC Jack Muscatt, 26, missing his face by millimetres. 

They had been called to a flat in Kennington in February last year to reports of a man with mental health issues holding a baby and shouting: “There will be blood.” More than 40,000 Londoners voted the pair the bravest officers in the Met as part of Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe’s Excellence in Total Policing awards.
