A serving Metropolitan Police Officer has been charged with actual bodily harm (ABH) and intentional strangulation after a woman reported being assaulted in Honor Oak.
PC Thomas Andrews, from the South East Command Unit, has been charged:
- Criminal Damage
- Three counts of intentional strangulation.
At 1am, on Saturday, July 9, patrolling officers responded to reports of an incident on Brockley Rise, SE23, and found a woman claiming she had been assaulted and her phone damaged.
Scotland Yard said that officers spoke to a man, known to the victim, and established he was PC Andrews, an off-duty police officer.
He was arrested on suspicion of ABH and criminal damage, charged, and kept in custody to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court that same day.
He has now been remanded in custody and will appear at Woolwich Crown Court on Monday, 8 August.
The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards have been informed.
