Main article content
We’re appealing for witnesses after an off-duty Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) was stabbed in Esher during the afternoon of 21st June 2022.
The PCSO had left Elmbridge Police Station and was walking through Church Path Walk, which is between the Civic Centre car park, the High Street and Esher Park Avenue, when she was approached by a young man and stabbed in the arm at around 2.50pm. She has been taken to hospital with serious injuries.
The boy is described as White, aged 14-15 years old and of slim build. He was wearing black trousers and black footwear with a black hooded top and a surgical face mask. He is believed to have fled the scene in the direction of Esher Park Avenue.
Detective Inspector Gareth Hicks, who is investigating the incident, said: “We do not believe this to be a terror-related incident, but we do believe this was a targeted attack as the PCSO was wearing parts of her uniform at the time.
We would like to speak to anyone who may have seen someone matching the suspect’s description between 2.00 and 3.15pm on 21st June.
I would urge anyone who may have witnessed something, no matter how insignificant, to contact us as soon as they are able.”
