POLICE are searching for the driver of a White Porsche who rammed a police car and injured an officer.
Officers were on patrol in Parkhurst Road area of Holloway when they signalled for a vehicle to stop.
The vehicle, a white Porsche Panamera, pulled over in a car park. The driver refused to get out of the car and then rammed the police car.
Police say one officer received minor injuries when the door of the police car was forced against his leg. He remained on duty.
Another officer on foot tried to stop the car, which drove at him. No contact was made and the officer was uninjured.
The car then made off, hitting six cars belonging to members of the public before stoping in Williamson Street, N7. The driver, described as in his early 20s, with a tanned complexion, left the car and ran off from the scene.
Inspector James Beattie said: “The driver of this vehicle has driven extremely dangerously to evade police, and it is lucky that police officers were not seriously injured. The Road Crime Team and detectives from Roads and Transport Policing Command are undertaking a thorough investigation and pursuing multiple lines of enquiry. I would appeal to any witnesses to come forward, and for the driver of this vehicle to hand himself in at the earliest opportunity”
