£20,000 reward in hunt to track down attacker who stabbed police officer in North Ayrshire | UK News

A £20,000 reward is being offered in the hunt for an attacker who stabbed a police officer last month.

The 30-year-old was attacked in North Ayrshire while three officers were investigating a report of a break-in at a property in Arthur Street, Stevenston, during the early hours of 18 October.

At the time, Chief Superintendent Raymond Higgins branded the attack “despicable”.

The Scottish Police Federation (SPF) reported that the officer sustained a “significant injury”, but colleagues would rally round.

The force’s union condemned the “traumatic incident” and said it showed the “unpredictable nature of policing”.

No one else was injured and, to date, no one has been charged over the stabbing.

Crimestoppers is now offering a reward of up to £20,000 for information that leads to a conviction in connection with the case.

The charity, which is independent of the police, guarantees the anonymity of any individual who comes forward.

Angela Parker, Crimestoppers national manager for Scotland, said: “Whilst we are not the police, our charity works closely with them every day by passing on essential tip-offs given to us anonymously.

“Our role is vital in keeping people and communities safe.

“We understand that it can be difficult to come forward with crime information, which is why our charity is here to support anyone who wants to make a difference but feels unable to speak directly to law enforcement.”

Murderer who confronted Fishmongers’ Hall terror attacker honoured in Queen Elizabeth’s final bravery awards | UK News

A convicted murderer who tackled a terrorist during the 2019 London Bridge attack is among those being awarded for their bravery.

Steven Gallant confronted terrorist Usman Khan as he carried out his attack at a prison education conference at Fishmongers’ Hall.

The attack occurred while Mr Gallant was on licence from prison after being one of two men convicted of killing Barrie Jackson in Hull in 2005.

Khan murdered Cambridge graduates Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23, and injured three other people before running on to London Bridge.

Another former prisoner, John Crilly, hosed Khan with a fire extinguisher before communications manager, Darryn Frost, jabbed him with a narwhal tusk, sending him off balance.

This came after a fourth man, Lukasz Koczocik, used a ceremonial long pike taken from the walls of Grade II listed Fishmongers’ Hall to disarm the terrorist.

Bystanders chase Usman Khan with narwhal tusk

Mr Gallant, Mr Crilly, Mr Frost and Mr Koczocik all feature on this year’s Civilian Gallantry list, the last to be approved by the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Prison officer Adam Roberts, who escorted Mr Gallant to the event on day release, also features on the list, having given first aid to Ms Jones after she was stabbed.

Mr Roberts said that it was “really important” for everybody that contributed to be recognised in some way.

He said: “I feel sort of mixed, it’s very difficult to celebrate when it’s for something that had an outcome that was so bad.

“It finished with Saskia literally dying in front of me as we tried to keep her alive, so it’s really difficult to celebrate at all when my thoughts are with her.”

Also on the list is John Rees who was killed as he attempted to stop a mentally ill woman carrying out a knife attack in a Co-op shop in May 2020.

The 88-year-old was stabbed and bludgeoned with two wine bottles and a fire extinguisher during the attack in South Wales.

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Oliver Dowden, said they were all “extremely worthy winners”.

He said: “We all hope we’d react with courage in the face of danger. These people have lived through that test, and responded in the most admirable way.

“Their selfless actions have saved lives, and I want to express profound thanks for their willingness to put themselves in danger to protect others.”

Do not approach: Police warn public to stay away from Katie Piper attacker | UK News

Police hunting the man who threw acid over television presenter Katie Piper have warned the public not to approach him – and say he may be out of the country.

Stefan Sylvestre, from Shepherd’s Bush, west London, has been recalled back to prison for breaching his licence conditions.

He had been given a life sentence in 2009 for the attack on Ms Piper and was told he must serve a minimum of six years before he would be eligible for parole.

He was released in 2018 when he was aged 30, a time Ms Piper has said was “really difficult” for her.

A Probation Service spokeswoman said on Sunday: “We are urgently working with the police to bring the offender back to prison where he’ll face longer behind bars.”

Detectives are appealing for information on his whereabouts but say inquiries so far show that he left the UK on 2 August. They have not said where he might have headed.

But the Metropolitan Police is working with partner agencies to trace him, adding that anyone who spots him should call 999 and that he “should not be approached”.

Ms Piper suffered horrific injuries in the acid attack that left her permanently scarred.

She was left fighting for her life after obsessive ex-boyfriend Daniel Lynch arranged for Sylvestre to throw the corrosive liquid in March 2008.

Lynch was jailed for life with a minimum of 16 years for sexually assaulting Piper and telling Sylvestre to throw acid on her.

In court, Lynch and Sylvestre were told by Judge Nicholas Browne QC they were “the face of pure evil”.

Anyone with information on Sylvestre’s whereabouts should speak to police immediately, quoting reference CAD6239/23Sep.

Family of Sikh priest appeal for help to find street attacker | UK News

The family of a “loving and caring” Sikh priest left with life-changing brain injuries after an attack in Manchester city centre have appealed to the public for help in catching his attacker.

The 62-year-old was left unconscious in the middle of Tib Street after the assault on Thursday 23 June 2022, and he still remains in hospital.

The force has now released CCTV footage, along with pictures of a man and woman who they believe may be able to help with the investigation.

A statement from the victim’s family said the husband and father had lived in the city for 37 years and “worked long hours every day to help his children live the life he never got to”.

But they said he had been “left for dead on the bustling streets of Manchester, a route he has walked home every day, while people watched on”.

The force has also released images of two people they hope can help with the investigation

The family added that he had had his life “tragically altered forever when a thug cowardly committed this heinous act, leaving him in a pool of blood with catastrophic permanent life-changing brain damage and walked away as if it was normal behaviour”.

They said: “We appeal to anyone who knows anything or knows the offender to come forward – it is more than two months since the incident, and we are no closer to finding them and bringing them to justice for their actions.

“Our husband/father lives in a hospital bed with life-changing injuries, not knowing what the future holds.

“Please, please act today not out of hate but to stop this happening again to someone else and tearing another family apart, as we would not wish this anguish on anyone else”.

Greater Manchester Police were called to the scene by the North West Ambulance Service shortly before 6.30pm.

After reviewing CCTV, officers saw the victim had been assaulted by an unknown male close to the junction with Hilton Street.

The offender then fled the scene on foot, turning left onto Oldham Street.

Detective Inspector Mark Astbury, of Longsight CID, said: “We took the decision to release the CCTV footage with the family’s permission, simply to show the severity and mindlessness of this attack and why we need to make sure the offender is found and faces the consequences of his appalling actions”.

Anyone with information, or who may recognise the man or woman pictured, is asked to contact Greater Manchester Police on 0161 856 6049 or report it online at
