A knifeman shrugged off being hit with a Taser and stabbed a police officer and three other people at a mosque in Birmingham last night.
The male police constable was responding to reports that three men had been stabbed inside the Madrasah Qasim ul Uloom mosque in the Ward End area of Birmingham when he was attacked.
The four men are being treated in hospital for their wounds and are described as 'stable'.
A 32-year-old man, believed to be of Somali extraction and a local, has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and is currently in custody, a police spokeswoman added.

Bobbies, by a large majority, don't want to be armed with lethal force.
Tasers don’t always work on people who are pumped on adrenaline.
Maybe Bobbies shouldn’t hire pansies.
Knifer 4; taser 0. Maybe a 9mm in the forehead to stop the attack would have been a better idea. Of course that would be once the “armed” bobbies were called and showed up half and hour to 45 minutes later. But do NOT offend the muzzies. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
Tasers dont always work on people who are pumped on adrenaline and Koran.
Since the stabbings happened inside the mosque do the Bobbies have jurisdiction or will the Imams ? /s
Should have cordoned the place & let the rampage run its course. A British “infidel” life is worth more that.
“Don’t stab the bobbie here at the mosque, brother.”
A minor point: I am greatly amused by the continued use of the word ‘bobbies’ in this thread and on the website in general. I’m not sure where you have got this from. No-one, and I include my OAP parents in this, uses that word in this country anymore. Coppers, Rozzers, the Old Bill, yes. Youngsters, as in most cases, have begun aping their US counterparts and calling them “the feds”. But never, ever Bobbies
ALL police in London should be forced to carry a .50 caliber Desert Eagle... haji would not have bounced back after that. Getting hit in the chest by a .50 DE is like getting hit with a Claymore in the chest. At 25 yards, it will leave a softball sized hole in a cracked and split cinder block... if there is a cinder block left.
Really? Explain this, then.
That's 43 pages at 10 hits, per, and that is just the Daily Mail.
ALL police in London should be forced to carry a .50 caliber Desert Eagle.
Heck, even the lowly .22 long rifle would be a vast improvement upon nothing, (and the recoil from the .50 American Express is rather more than most English people could handle, anyway.)

“Bobbies on the beat are likely to be spared compulsory annual fitness tests because chief constables are worried too many would fail.”
Up here in Lancashire, I know many police officers who call themselves ‘bobbies’ and they are known as such by members of the public as well (generally by people who have a positive opinion of them). Of course, they are called more pejorative terms as well by people of the sort who have reasons to view them in a less affectionate way.
In Manchester they’re known as ‘the Dibble’ and in Liverpool as ‘the Bizzies’ (because allegedly, whenever you call them, they’re always busy).
Britain needs to return to the .455 revolver and auto cartridge.
The .45 ACP was designed for Juramentados.
Maybe the other poster lives in Ireland or something. :-)
I posted a bit of a speech of his (Powell) on other site recently. Amazing (and terrible) how well he predicted the current state of affairs now, 45 years ago, except for maybe focusing too much on blacks rather than Muslims.
