Uniformed PCSO stabbed in ‘targeted assault’, three teenagers arrested
The off-duty officer was seriously injured after being stabbed in Esher on Tuesday afternoon, Surrey Police said
Three teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of the attempted murder of a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) who was stabbed to death in a “pointed attack”.
The off-duty officer was seriously injured after being stabbed in Esher on Tuesday afternoon, Surrey Police said.
She was attacked at around 2:05 p.m. while walking through the Old Church Path en route from Elmbridge Police Station.
The suspect is said to have fled the scene toward Esher Park Avenue.
He is described as white, 14-15 years old and slim build.
Surrey Police said he was wearing black trousers and black shoes with a black hooded top and surgical face mask.
Two 15-year-old boys and a 14-year-old boy were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
In a statement, Detective Inspector Gareth Hicks said: “We do not believe there was a terrorist incident but we believe this was a targeted attack as the PCSO was wearing parts of their uniform at the time.
“We would like to speak to anyone who saw someone matching the suspect’s description or saw three young men on a moped between 1.30pm and 3.50pm this afternoon in the Esher and Claygate areas.
“I would urge anyone who may have seen anything, no matter how insignificant, to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
Anyone with any information has been urged to contact police on 101 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if they wish to remain anonymous.
