|Two Men Arrested on A4 on Stolen Mopeds|
Police spotted men riding erratically towards Hogarth Roundabout
Two men have been arrested for a number of offences after police spotted them riding erratically along the A4 between Hammersmith and the Hogarth Roundabout on stolen mopeds.
Police say at 11pm on Monday, 27 July, officers from Hammersmith and Fulham were in an unmarked police vehicle on the A4. As they were passing the BP Garage westbound they saw three men on mopeds pass them at speed swerving through the lanes.
As the police van activated the blue lights all three rode off at speed. One of the suspects then fell off a moped on the Hogarth roundabout. After a struggle he was detained by officers.
The other two suspects then returned and began to circle the officers shouting verbal threats. One was waving a knife threatening to stab the officers unless they released the detained suspect. A bus driver stopped his vehicle and jumped out to assist police.
Two of the suspects were subsequently arrested. When officers searched the mopeds they found ten bags of herbal cannabis, a screwdriver and bolt cutters.
Suspect 1 - believed to be aged in his 20s - was arrested for dangerous driving, possession with intent to supply class B drugs, theft of motor vehicle, going equipped, affray and assault on a police officer. He was also further arrested for breach of his ASBO.
