A 16-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of attempting to murder a policeman who was stabbed in the stomach in east London.
The police was seriously injured in a car park while investigating reports of anti-social behaviour near a block of flats in Bow, Tower Hamlets, on
Sunday night.
A knife was recovered and the teenage suspect has been taken to an east London police station for questioning.
Scotland Yard said the male officer was taken to hospital with what was described as "a serious stab injury to the abdomen".
The force added that there is not believed to be any link to extremism or terrorism.
Police were called at shortly before 11pm to reports of anti-social behaviour and a moped being ridden near to flats at Bunsen House, off Grove Road.

Two officers arrived at the scene and, at around 11.30pm, a Pc was stabbed in a nearby car park.
Police said the officer is in a "serious, but stable condition" in hospital.
Fellow officers used Metropolitan Police Twitter accounts to honour the injured policeman:


A spokesman said nobody else had been arrested in connection with the stabbing or the earlier anti-social behaviour.
