22-year-old Mohammed Zakariyya, of Havering Street, Stepney, was sentenced at Snaresbrook crown court today after being convicted on September 26, at the same court, for the attempted GBH of a police officer.  The incident took place last year, on November 9, when PC Christopher Phillips noticed Zakariyya wasn’t wearing his seatbelt. After PC Phillips asked him to stop Zakariyya reversed 15 metres before driving aggressively towards the policeman and braking just inches from him. The policeman repeated his request before Zakariyya, according to other officers on the scene, stared directly at PC Phillips before accelerating into him and driving off. The officer was yhrown from the car bonnet and landed on the road leaving him with bone and deep tissue injuries.
