Jamshid Piruz, 35, was handed a life sentence earlier this year after he launched a frenzied attack on the two officers in East Sussex. He cornered PC Jessica Chick
and lashed out wildly at her with the claw hammer before repeatedly hitting her colleague PC Stuart Young
. Both officers suffered injuries in the terrifying attack and thought they were going to be killed. It later emerged Piruz had served time in jail for murder after brutally killing a woman in his flat.
