This is the dramatic moment a thug who stabbed a police officer in the neck is arrested at gunpoint after being found hiding in a shower.
Armed police stormed Jason Brown’s flat shortly after his kitchen knife attack on PC Michael Doyle, 36.
They found Brown – who officers initially tried to arrest for assaulting a neighbour – slumped in a bathroom with his hands in the air.
Officers have just released the dramatic bodycam footage of his arrest on 12 December 2017.
They are seen smashing the door of his flat in Erdington, Birmingham, before firing plastic bullets inside.
Officers burst into the flat screaming: ‘Show me your hands now!’ while another shouts: ‘He’s in the shower!’
Another officer confronts Brown as he cowers in the bath tub behind a shower curtain, telling him: ‘Stay calm, do as I say, look at me.’
Police then seize the blood-stained knife which was on the floor next to Brown before he is searched and slapped in handcuffs.
Another large, sheathed blade was also discovered on the lounge floor.
Brown, 48, was given an indefinite hospital order at Birmingham Crown Court on Thursday after being found guilty of wounding and assault.
He was found not guilty by a jury on a more serious charge of attempted murder.
The court heard Brown attacked a neighbour with a flurry of punches and kicks on 9 December 2017 and left his victim with a broken collarbone.
Three days later officers swooped to arrest him but after forcing entry to the flat, Brown leapt from behind a corner brandishing the knife and stabbing PC Doyle in the throat.
His colleagues used towels as they desperately tried to stem the blood loss from his neck.
After the sentencing, Chief Superintendent Kenny Bell, said: ‘It was a savage attack on a police officer in the line of duty.
‘It serves as a reminder to us all of the inherent dangers faced by police officers on a daily basis in our efforts to prevent crime, protect the public and help those in need.
‘PC Doyle and colleagues who’d initially made the arrest attempt were forced to retreat from the flat as Brown lashed out with the knife.
‘But they contained the building to ensure he couldn’t escape and potentially put other members of the public in danger.
‘Armed officers were called in for support and they moved in swiftly and decisively to detain the offender.
‘We all wish PC Doyle our best wishes in his continuing recovery.’
