Wembley man denies attempting to murder four police officers in Kingsbury

Accused pleads not guilty to attack last November

A Wembley man accused of attempting to murder four police officers during a stabbing frenzy in Kingsbury has denied the charges.

Christopher Alexander Houghton, of Milford Gardens, is charged with attacking the four policemen after they were called to a disturbance in Kingsbury Road, on November 19 last year.

The officers, who are all based in Harrow, were taken to hospital where one, in his 20s, suffered a stab wound to his stomach; a second, also in his 20s, suffered head injuries and a stab wound to the arm; the third, in his 30s, was treated for a stab wound to the leg and the fourth was treated for a broken hand.

Last week, the 32-year-old appeared at the Old Bailey for a plea and case management hearing.
