Man detained outside Buckingham Palace after attack on police

Post  Lamplighter on Sat Aug 26, 2017 7:18 am

Two London police officers suffered minor injuries to their arms while detaining a man on The Mall outside Buckingham Palace, Metropolitan Police said.

Authorities said the man is being held on suspicion of assault of police and grievous bodily harm.

In a statement, police said the man, thought to be in his 20s, stopped his car near a police vehicle outside the Mall roundabout near Spur Road around 8:35 p.m. (3:35 p.m. ET) Friday,

Officers spotted a large knife in his vehicle and went to arrest him, police said. During the arrest, two male police officers suffered minor injuries to their arms.
The officers were treated at the scene. No one else was reported injured, police said.

"No members of the public had any interaction with this individual at the scene," Detective Superintendent Guy Collings said. "He will now be questioned by detectives in police custody."

Buckingham Palace is not on "lockdown," Metropolitan Police said. The incident is not being treated as a terrorist attack, but the suspect is being questioned, a spokesperson said.

Queen Elizabeth II was not at the palace, her official residence, palace officials said. She is at Balmoral Castle, her holiday residence in Scotland.

Police: Palace suspect drove at police van, went for sword.

British counterterrorism police on Saturday were investigating a man who was detained after he drove a car at police outside Buckingham Palace then "reached for a 4-foot sword," injuring three police officers.

The Metropolitan Police force said officers stopped a 26-year-old man who deliberately drove at a police van near Queen Elizabeth II's London residence, one of the city's top tourist attractions. "Uniformed officers then confronted the driver of the vehicle and during that confrontation the driver reached for a 4-foot sword" in the car, Dean Haydon, commander of the Metropolitan Police counterterrorism branch, said.

The suspect repeatedly shouted "Allahu akbar," which means "God is great" in Arabic, Haydon said. Three London police officers were slightly injured while struggling to arrest him, he added. Haydon said the arrest was an isolated incident, adding that police presence was heightened in London regardless because of the long Bank Holiday weekend.

The suspect was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and remained in custody in a London police station. No one other than him and the police officers was injured. British media reported that no members of the royal family were in Buckingham Palace at the time.

Buckingham Palace did not comment and directed all questions to London police. It said tours of the parts of the palace that are open to the public in summer were unaffected Saturday. Witness Kiana Williamson said she saw officers trying to wrestle a man out of a car that had stopped near the palace. In less than a minute, "the man had been restrained and looked almost unconscious by the side of the road," Williamson said.

Last year, a man convicted of murder climbed a palace wall and was detained on the grounds while the queen was at home.

Looks like it might be jihadi based. LL

I wonder, is it hard for the police to work out just what is the motive, if someone is mentally ill AND going round shouting about 'Allah'?
