Jurors have already been shown CCTV footage of a man running through Hastings House in Stamshaw, near to where 56-year-old PC Turner was stabbed and suffered a collapsed lung.

Londoner Enzanga, 20, of Ashfield Road, Tottenham, denies grievous bodily harm with intent, possession of a knife, four charges of possessing class a drugs with intent to supply and posessing criminal property - nearly £1,000 in cash.

He was arrested in a garden in Jervis Road hiding under tarpaulin, the court previously heard.

Giving evidence, PC Will Davies, who was with Enzanga in custody and asked for his name, said: ‘I asked if he had those details and he put his middle finger up at me.’

The officer said there was phlegm on the perspex door in a police van carrying Enzanga, and later on the door of his holding cell.

‘I asked for his name, I wasn’t getting that as a response, I was getting various threats,’ the officer said.

He told jurors Enzanga said: ‘Take that body armour off and we’ll see who’s harder, wait until I find out where you live and we’ll see who’s smiling.’

PC Turner was patrolling the park in plainclothes with PC Clare Parry, 49, when he went to detain a suspected drug dealer at around 12.15pm and a violent struggle broke out. He was stabbed twice in the back.
