Kamran Iqbal, 23, jailed for 'chilling' attack on PC Steve Avinou after being caught with drugs in his underpants

A MAN who subjected a police officer to a violent and “chilling” attack because he tried to search him for drugs has been jailed for two years.

Kamran Iqbal, 23, was partly handcuffed to PC Steve Avinou when he used his free hand to punch him repeatedly during the “disgraceful” assault on June 30, 2016.

PC Avinou suffered a broken nose and had teeth knocked out in the attack, which was only stopped when a passer-by intervened.

Bradford Crown Court heard that the victim was patrolling alone when he saw Iqbal’s car on Rebecca Street and conducted a routine traffic stop.


He went on to perform a drugs search after getting the “potent fresh smell” of cannabis, and Iqbal was found to have a quantity of the drug stashed in his underpants.

He resisted when PC Avinou tried to handcuff him, knocking the officer to the floor as he tried to flee.

The victim kept his dominant hand on the cuffs holding Iqbal, at which point he was subjected to the sustained attack, which he said involved him being punched to the head around ten times.

The court heard that a crowd of people had gathered to watch the incident unfold, but it was a passing lorry driver, John Dawson, who stopped and dragged Iqbal off the officer by getting him in a “bear-hug”.
