A witness told Harrow Online: “When the first policemen came they cuffed him and put him down, his hands were already bleeding from before for some reason.”

A Met Police spokesperson told Harrow Online: “A man has been charged with threatening behaviour and three counts of assaulting a constable in the execution of their duty.

“Glenn Macfarlane, aged 23 (14.03.1997), Tokyngton Avenue, HA9, was charged on Thursday, 25 June, and will appear before Willesden Magistrates’ Court on 21 August.
