Man charged over police stabbings

A 30-year-old man will appear in court on Friday charged with the attempted murder of two police officers.

A police constable remains in hospital in a "serious but stable condition" following the alleged stabbing at a bus stop in New Broadway, Ealing, on Wednesday afternoon.

The other injured man, a community support officer, is recovering after being discharged on the day of the assault.

John Paul Onyenaychi, of Wise Road, east London, is charged with two counts of attempted murder relating to the incident.

The unemployed man is also accused of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm against a second PCSO.

He will appear before Brent Magistrates' Court.

The police officers were injured after they approached a passenger as part of a routine bus ticket check.
