A Met Police officer has been jailed for assaulting a woman while off-duty.
PC Thomas Andrews was sentenced to one year and four months after pleading guilty to causing actual bodily harm at Woolwich Crown Court on 19 January.
He also received a restraining order following the incident around 1 am on 9 July 2022 in Brockley Rise, SE23. He will face a misconduct hearing as soon as possible.
Detective Chief Superintendent Seb Adjei-Addoh said: “I am saddened by this incident and grateful to members of the public who raised the alarm, resulting in PC Andrews’ prompt arrest.
“Under the leadership of Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley, everyone in the Met is clear that we must root out those who corrupt the integrity of our organisation. This will take time, but we are absolutely committed to achieving high standards.”
