Armed criminal who broke DC's finger during chase jailed

DC Stefan Karanja said the 'physical, mental and financial strains' of the injury have deeply impacted his life.

An armed criminal recently released from prison has been jailed once again after breaking a police officer's finger in two places while trying to resist arrest.

Cambridgeshire's Detective Constable Stefan Karanja was on patrol in the early hours of August 20 when he saw Dillon Currie in an underpass.

Upon seeing the officer, the 30-year-old ran off but was detained after a brief chase during which he pushed DC Karanja and caused his injury.

A subsequent search revealed a foot-long kitchen knife in Currie's waistband, resulting in his arrest. Having been released from prison eight days earlier on theft charges, the 30-year-old was recalled to serve the remainder of his sentence. 

On October 28, he was jailed for a further nine months at Cambridge Crown Court after admitting assault causing actual bodily harm (ABH) and being in possession of a knife in a public place.
