The 30-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday, 13 October at an address in the Isle of Dogs, east London after a targeted operation by Specialist Crime South proactive teams, supported by officers on the South East Command Unit.

He was arrested on suspicion of assault on police, kidnap and blackmail.

A 30-year-woman also present at the address was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

They are both currently in custody at a south London police station.

The man was sought by police after he crashed his Lamborghini Urus into a police vehicle on Broadway in Bexleyheath on Monday, 5 October whilst trying to evade capture.

Four officers suffered whiplash injuries as a result.

Detective Chief Inspector John Swinfield, from the Met’s Specialist Crime South proactive team, said: “This is a good example of the Met’s specialist units working closely with police teams in boroughs, to locate and take people suspected of serious crime and violence off the streets.

“The car attack on officers was extremely serious and reckless, and it was fortunate that no-one was seriously injured.”
