DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Mohammed Rahman has also been charged with causing grievous bodily harm following the incident on Friday.
One of the two victims was discharged from the hospital following surgery.
A female officer and her male colleague patrolled the area and dealt with another incident when they were made aware of a man possessing a knife.
The female police officer suffered a severe stab wound to her arm, which may be life-changing, while her male colleague was stabbed three times in the neck and once in the chest but is expected to recover fully.
After additional officers rushed to the scene to help, a further officer suffered a minor hand injury, while another sustained damage to his protective vest caused by the knife.
A Metropolitan Police statement said: “A man has been charged by detectives investigating the stabbing of two police officers in Westminster on Friday, September 16.
“Mohammed Rahman, 24, of Westbourne Park Road, W2, was charged on Saturday, September 17, with attempted murder and Section 18 GBH.
“The attempted murder charge relates to a male police constable, the GBH to a female police constable.
“He was also charged with assault (ABH) and two counts of threatening a person in a public place with a bladed article. These charges relate to three other police constables.
“In addition, he was charged with robbery and possession of a bladed article.
“Rahman will appear in custody at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Monday, September 19.”
The officers – both attached to the Met’s Central West Command Unit – were carrying out routine duties and were not part of the more comprehensive policing operation in place following the death of Her Majesty the Queen.
Detective Chief Superintendent Owain Richards, from the Central West Command Unit, responsible for policing Westminster, said: “Every day, police officers go out on the streets to keep the communities of London safe. In doing so, they often have to put themselves in danger, risking their welfare to protect others.
“The actions of these two officers, and their colleagues, exemplify the key value of courage that runs through the core of the Metropolitan Police, and they will be offered all the support they need as they begin their recovery from this terrifying incident.”
Detectives are leading an investigation into the circumstances from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command.
