Motorcycle thief attacked police biker with hammer
Habitual motorcycle thief Nathan Bick has been jailed again, this time for attacking a police officer with a claw hammer.
Nathan Bick, the motorcycle thief who taunted police on their own Facebook page, has received a prison sentence for attacking a police officer with a claw hammer.
Bick, 19, of Ascalon Street, London, SW8 was sentenced at Blackfriars Crown Court on Tuesday, 6 June to two years in jail for theft of a motor vehicle, attempted Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH) with a weapon, and driving whilst disqualified.
The teenager and a pillion passenger were riding a stolen Honda scooter in Eversholt Street, North London when a marked police bike and an unmarked bike started a pursuit. Bick and his passenger attempted to escape arrest by mounting the pavement and driving through bollards on the scooter, which had been reported stolen the day before.
Bick lost control driving over a kerb and the officer on the unmarked bike pulled alongside, at which point Bick produced a claw hammer and swung it at the officer’s head, before running off.
The motorbike thief was later found in a nearby estate and was arrested for theft of a motor vehicle, attempted GBH and possession of an offensive weapon. The pillion passenger was not found and police continue to make enquiries.
Police Sergeant Tony McGovern, from the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “Officers are dedicated to stopping moped thieves and bringing them to justice, which is exactly why happened in this investigation.
“They continued to pursue the suspect even when he threatened to attack them with a hammer.”
Previously, Biker & Bike reported that Bick had received a two-month sentence for motorcycle theft.
