Police are chasing down a racing driver who hit the police officer and made him "yell for help" after driving through the cordon at the site of the knife stab in London
- The officer responded to reports of a knife stab in Finsbury Park, London
- Witnesses say they saw a white car speed through the police cordon at the scene
- The officer sustained arm and leg injuries when he "yelled for help," they said
A police officer "yelled for help" after being hit by a car last night after being stabbed in north London.
The officer responded to reports of a sting outside Manor House Station in Finsbury Park around 2 a.m. when he was reportedly hit.
Witnesses claim they saw a white car speed through a police cordon set up to investigate the incident around 2:30 a.m.
The officer was standing on the edge of the sidewalk when the car appeared to lose control and held him, city police told MailOnline. He was treated for shock, added a spokesman for the force.
It goes without saying that the collision and the stabbing are not related.
"At around 2:35 am, an officer who was responding to the incident came into close contact with a car that was driving past the scene," Met police said.

Fortunately, the car just drove past the officer and did not completely collide with him. He was not injured but was treated for shock by paramedics.
The investigation into the location of the driver of the vehicle involved in the incident with the officer is ongoing. No arrests were made. & # 39;
Community Reverend Efrayim Goldstein said he was one of the first to help around 2 a.m. and open the officer's jacket so he could breathe properly.
He said the officer stood behind the cordon and signaled the car to stop before it pulled out at the last second and stopped him.
"He wasn't breathing properly," said Mr. Goldstein to the mirror.
He said, "Please help me." He knelt on the other officer and then went back to the ground. I then supported his back with my body so he could open his zipper.
& # 39; He was happy. He could have died. He screamed and cried. & # 39;
The London Ambulance Service took over on site.
The Met Police said: “The police were called at 1:55 am Thursday, September 10th to report a knife stab at the intersection of Green Lanes and Seven Sisters Road, N4.
Officers and the London Ambulance Service participated. A 28-year-old man was hospitalized with a stab wound. His condition is not life threatening. No arrests have been made and the Central East Command Unit's investigation continues. & # 39;
