Mubashar Hussain, 29, and Ahsan Ghafoor, 24, were arrested in the Sparkbrook area of Birmingham
A 29-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder after a police officer was run over by his own patrol car.
Mubashar Hussain, 29, was arrested in the Sparkbrook area of Birmingham on Sunday.
The 42-year-old traffic officer was left with potentially life-changing injuries including a broken pelvis and head, abdominal and other internal injuries after the incident in Moseley, Birmingham, the day before.
A West Midlands Police statement said: 'It’s alleged Mubashar Hussain hijacked a police car in Moorcroft Road, Moseley, at around 4.45pm and reversed into the officer, knocking him down, before driving over his body as he lay pinned under the vehicle.'
'The 29-year-old, formerly of Sherwood Road in Hall Green, was arrested yesterday in the Sparkbrook area and has now been charged with a catalogue of offences, including attempted murder of the 42-year-old traffic officer.'
'He also faces charges of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, a separate count of dangerous driving, wounding another officer who suffered a cut arm, four counts of assaulting other PCs, driving while disqualified, motoring offences and two car thefts.'
'The car thefts relate to a Range Rover Sport stolen at around 4.30pm on Saturday and another Range Rover stolen in Birmingham the previous day.'
'A second man, 24-year-old Ahsan Ghafoor, from Fulham Road in Sparkhill, has been charged with the same two car thefts, plus dangerous driving and other motoring offences.'
Editor's comment - When you import large numbers of people who believe that they are above the law and superior in every way to the 'kuffar' then it's hardly surprising that we see more and more appalling cases like this. It's time to bring in an amendment to the law of being 'Criminal while Muslim' which would attract a five-times uplift to any given sentence.
