Telegraph, 09 Sep 2021
Dramatic footage from a body-worn camera shows the moment a quick-thinking police officer commandeered a cyclist's bike in order to chase down and arrest a suspected domestic abuser in a park.

PC Tom Harris had been on domestic call-out when he spotted the wanted man a quarter of a mile away at Oaklands Recreational Ground, in Yardley, Birmingham.

Video from the officer's camera shows him giving chase along Hob Moor Road before asking a cyclist if he could borrow his mountain bike.

The man was arrested for allegedly breaching the conditions of a court bail.

He is alleged to have attempted to force entry to a house he is banned from visiting.
