A High Wycombe woman has been banned from contacting the emergency services unless she is in genuine need after assaulting police officers in London.

Hibo Mahamed, of West Wycombe Road, attacked Met Police officers on a number of occasions - scratching them and kicking one in the leg and head.

The 30-year-old has now also been banned from contacting the emergency services unless she genuinely needs their help and is not allowed to verbally abuse any emergency worker either over the phone or in person.

A judge at Isleworth Crown Court gave Mahamed a criminal behaviour order (CBO) on October 20.

She is banned from the London boroughs of Brent and Harrow unless she has a pre-arranged appointment and inciting others to act in an anti-social way.

At the same court hearing, she was also sentenced to a hospital order under Section 37 of the Mental Health Act.

Mahamed earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of ABH, two counts of assaulting an emergency worker and one count of racially aggravated harassment, alarm or distress.

It comes after a string of separate incidents involving Met Police officers.

On July 9, 2019, police were called to an address in Harlesden amid reports a woman was damaging property.

Mahamed scratched one of the officers, drawing blood, meaning they had to have a tetanus booster.

She was arrested and released under investigation.

On February 18 this year, police were called to Wembley following another report Mahamed was behaving in a disorderly way.

When police arrived, Mohamed was racially abusive to one of the officers.

The next day, she kicked an officer in the leg and head, forcing them to take time off work.

When Mahamed later attended a police station for an interview in relation to the above offences, she again became aggressive, digging her nails into the wrist of one officer causing bleeding, and spitting in the face of another.

Both officers needed hospital treatment and tetanus injections.

PC Rachel Buckley, who led the investigation, said: “We are reassured to know that officers and others in the emergency services now have this level of protection against a habitual offender who had absolutely no regard for their safety or wellbeing.

“Mahamed now has the chance to get the treatment she requires and hopefully turn her life around.”
