West Midlands Police said the officer was walking down a road when the suspect demanded his car keys. Witness Sandy Dhanda described how she saw the attacker make a stabbing motion towards the car driver after chasing him.

‘All of a sudden I saw a white tissue or something and he was doing a stabbing motion towards him. ‘In the 18 months I’ve been here I have never had a problem – it’s a good area and it was shocking. I’m still shaking now.’ The victim, 25, was treated in hospital for non-life-threatening wounds and has since been discharged
