Suspect wielding a golf club attacks officers
PC Christi Hill and her partner PC Tristan Parsons were off duty when they saw a man committing a burglary in a salon. He had smashed his way in using a golf club. The officers attempted to detain the man who was threatening members of the public with the golf club. They ended up rolling around in the glass and the man stabbed PC Hill in the finger with a hypodermic needle, shouting that he was ‘infected with HIV’.
Hampshire Police Federation Chair Zoe Wakefield said: “Christi and Tristan had no personal protective kit and no immediate recourse to back-up so to stop this incident from becoming much worse is a real credit to them.”
