PC Kimberley Wheldon

Single-crewed cop detains knifeman

Single-crewed officer PC Wheldon was refuelling a police car at a petrol station when two men started to argue, and one stabbed the other in the neck with a knife.

Without hesitation PC Wheldon detained the man, handcuffed him behind his back and put him in the police car before giving first aid to the victim.

The offender was searched when other officers arrived and when the area behind his hands was checked, what looked like a firearm was partially hidden in the crease of the seat. It was later found to be a BB gun.

The suspect was significantly larger than PC Wheldon and had previous for assaulting police. PC Wheldon acted in a selfless manner, putting the safety of others before her own.
