A man is due to appear in court charged with the attempted murder of two police officers, one of whom was stabbed in the head.

Carlos Djau, 20, of Walworth in south east London, will appear before Camberwell Green Magistrates accused of two counts of attempted murder, following an incident at an address in Cooks Road on 28 February.

Police were responding to a call about an armed man who had picked up a baby. The police tried to speak to the Djau and persuade him to put the child down, but he then attacked the officers. One of the officers received stab wound to his head and shoulder.

He was taken to hospital for his injuries, but has since been discharged. The baby was not harmed during the incident, a Metropolitan Police spokesperson confirmed.
