A Metropolitan Police Service officer will appear at for trial at City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday, 28 October, charged with common assault.

PC Connor Pennery, 27, has been charged following an IOPC independent investigation into an allegation an officer may have used excessive force when detaining a man on Jermyn Street.

The detention took place at approximately 3.20pm on Saturday, 16 February 2019, when PC Pennery was on duty for a ‘yellow vest’ protest taking place that day.
