Two officers witnessed two males armed with knives attempting to rob the store in London at around 3.42pm, the Metropolitan Police said.

The shopkeeper had managed to push the suspects out of the store and the officers then tried to detain them.

As they challenged the males, police said one of the officers received a stab wound to the abdomen but continued to chase the suspects along Vauxhall Bridge Road.

They were detained a short time later with the assistance of firearms officers.

Police said the officer was taken to hospital, adding that her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The incident happened in Chapter Street, in Westminster, central London .

Chief Inspector Simon Brooker, of Central West BCU, said: ‘This shows precisely the kind of danger officers face every single day as they work to keep the public safe.

‘For this officer to be stabbed on duty is unacceptable but, fortunately, she does not appear to be seriously injured.

‘I applaud her bravery in responding to this call. This courage is typical of Met officers as they go about their duties.’
