This is a shocking video of a hammer-wielding maniac trying to attack a group of cops – after they taser him.
Dramatic footage shows the moment police officers corner the murderer Jamshid Piruz, 34, in an old shed in Crawley, West Sussex.
The cops –who had a police dog with them – called for Afghan-born muslim to come out of his hiding place and surrender himself after receiving reports of a man acting suspiciously The Sun.com reported.
They shouted to the suspect to tell him they have seen him and warn him they are armed with tasers.
But Piruz – who can be seen peering out of the gloom – refuses to come quietly.
After ignoring their repeated requests, the officers fire their weapons.
Watch the video:
But rather than falling to the ground incapacitated, Piruz – who was jailed in the Netherlands after slitting the throat of his female tenant – comes charging out of the lock-up wielding a hammer.
The stunned officers back away, but as they do, the suspect corners the female officer, PC Jessie Chick, who can be heard screaming as she tries to fend off his attack.
Her colleagues rush to her aid with their batons drawn, firing their tasers at Piruz again in a desperate bid to subdue him.
One of the male officers – PC Stuart Young – is struck on the neck and shoulder before finally, the brave cops are able to overpower and arrest Piruz.
Fortunately, none of the police suffered serious injuries and PC Young was able to return to work the next day.
Brutal Piruz was handed two life sentences at Hove crown court today after admitting burglary, affray and two counts of attempted grievous bodily harm with intent.
The judge said he would serve a minimum of five years, as well as 9 months for the affray and 6 months for the burglary.
