‘I caught his arm and restrained him to the floor to defend myself and that is when my body-worn video camera was activated.

‘From that point Reynolds apologised and asked if he could have a cigarette.’

After lighting his cigarette, Sam Reynolds reached into his bag again to find a sharp object to threaten and later stab PCSO Sam Bushen with.

The brave PCSO had pulled over his vehicle after spotting Reynolds, who then tried to throw a punch at him. Reynolds, who was wanted by police officers in connection to burglaries and shop thefts across the local area, then calmed down - or so it seemed. PCSO Bushen said: "I wasn't technically called to the scene, as I had just found Sam Reynolds whilst he was walking along."

PCSO Bushen added: ‘I remember being in a bit of daze, like “has this actually happened? How and why did this happen to me?”

‘Physically the wound was minor and just needed cleaning and to be dressed. But mentally I was exhausted.

‘Something I have never had to deal with in my head is someone trying to stab me and actually stabbing me. So that had an effect.’

Despite his injuries, he kept hold of Reynolds until police arrived. Reynolds was jailed to five years in prison.

PCSO Bushen added: ‘We are human beings trying to help solve people’s problems.

‘We have families, children and people in our lives just like you do and we want to go home safe to them each and every day.’
