Man In Court On Police Officer Stab Charge

A 42-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the attempted murder of a Dorset police officer.

Michael Edward was remanded in custody at Bournemouth Magistrates' Court charged with trying to kill the 35-year-old local beat constable.

The policeman was stabbed twice while carrying out inquiries in Surrey Road, in the Westbourne area of Bournemouth, Dorset, on Monday evening (21st February 2011).

He suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries and was taken to Poole Hospital by ambulance.

He remains in hospital and his condition is stable, a Dorset Police spokesman said today.

Edward, from Bournemouth, was arrested at the scene after colleagues responded to an emergency call for assistance.

He was remanded into custody to appear at Winchester Crown Court on March 2, Dorset Police said.
