Two arrests after young copper knocked down by Land Rover

Police are making further appeals following two arrests after a young policeman was knocked down by a Land Rover.

Officers are keen to speak with anyone who saw the incident in Village Way, Dulwich, at 5.35pm on April 14.

PC Will Freeland’s leg was broken in two places after ordering the vehicle to pull over, believing it had been involved in a burglary.

PC Freeland approached on foot and opened the driver’s door. It then reversed at high speed, knocking him to the ground and smashing into parked cars.

The driver ran towards the train tracks at North Dulwich Station.

A 36-year-old man was arrested on April 23 on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, reckless driving, and making off from the scene of an accident and burglary. He has been bailed until a date in early July.

A 25-year-old male passenger was also arrested on suspicion of burglary and has been bailed until a date in July.

PC Freeland expects to be in a leg brace for six months, meaning he will not be fir to work for some time, but a colleague said he is “extremely lucky” his injuries were not more severe.

Anyone with information is asked to call Southwark CID via 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
