A police officer run over with his own patrol car by a suspected car thief has undergone surgery and will return to the operating theatre again later.

The PC, 42, for West Midlands Police, was punched to the ground and hit by his vehicle on Saturday as he tried to arrest a man thought to have stolen a Range Rover Sport in Moseley.

He suffered serious head injuries, but his condition is not life-threatening.

A 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

The force said the officer, who also suffered a broken pelvis, underwent surgery on Saturday night and was expected to undergo another operation on Sunday.

Supt Tom Joyce said: “It’s difficult to give a prognosis at the moment. They are certainly potentially life-changing injuries but we are relieved to say, we understand they are not believed to be life-threatening.

“His wife is aware of the incident and is with him at this time.”

The officer has been with West Midlands Police for 17 years, of which the last 12 he has been serving as a traffic officer.

“He’s a second generation police officer – his father served with West Midlands Police as well – so policing is in his blood. It’s his calling if you will,” added the senior officer.

Supt Joyce said an “overriding sentiment of all officers is one of shock” following the incident.

Police said the officer was in Moorcroft Road, Moseley, at about 16:45 BST, tracing the Range Rover, which had been stolen minutes earlier from a woman.

“It’s understood the man drove the marked police car for around a mile into Ladypool Road, Sparkbrook, where he abandoned the vehicle and tried to steal another car,” a force spokesman said.

The suspect was later cornered by armed police and Tasered before being arrested.

Police said they had arrested a 29-year-old man, from Hall Green, on suspicion of the attempted murder of a police officer. A 24-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of car theft.

Home Secretary Priti Patel said she was “appalled” by the “sickening attack.”

The attack came just days after PC Stuart Outten was stabbed in the head as he tried to stop a van suspected of having no insurance in Leyton, east London.

The Met Police officer Tasered his assailant despite receiving multiple stab wounds to his head and body.
