This is the sickening moment a thug booted a female police officer down a flight of stairs after she stepped in to stop a daylight burglary.

Andre Bailey, 38, of no fixed address, was jailed for three and a half years for the horrific assault in London's West End.

Footage taken on the officer’s body cam shows her telling Bailey to “give me your arms now”.

He tells her to get off him before raising his leg to kick her.

“Don’t kick me,” she shouts but, seconds later, Bailey boots her down the stairs.

The officer screams as she falls to the bottom of the stairs with a loud thud.

Just before the video ends, Bailey can be heard saying: “Get off me, I told you.”

Police were called at around 2pm on September 16 to reports of a burglary at a residential building on Charing Cross Road, in London’s West End, reports MyLondon.

Bailey was found in the communal area having broken into the flat of a 90-year-old woman, who was not in at the time.

He became aggressive when officers tried to arrest him and, as the footage showed, kicked one in the chest.

She was treated for minor injuries after hitting her head on a wall.

After calling for back up, she managed to detain the man using CS spray and he was taken into custody.

During an interview with detectives Bailey showed no remorse for his actions.

Detective Constable Nigel Pacquette, from the Central West Command Unit, said: “Bailey did everything he could to obstruct the officer in her lawful duty to arrest him. She was lucky not to have been seriously injured.

“This case highlights the very real risk with which police officers are confronted on a daily basis and the courage and professionalism officers demonstrate when doing their job. This behaviour is absolutely unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”

Bailey was sentenced to three and a half years in jail after pleading guilty to burglary (three years) and assault on an emergency worker (six months).

Both sentences will run consecutively, meaning the full term is three and a half years.
