Attacks on cops 'a ritual'.

A VICIOUS gang has attacked a string of police officers in a sick initiation ritual for its members, detectives believe.

The thugs make fake 999 calls then batter officers who come to their aid.

The assaults allegedly include a sickening ambush on a policewoman on Valentine's Day.

A 20-year-old claimed he had been kidnapped and slashed with a knife.

The officer found the man with cuts on his arm but he is then believed to have smiled before repeatedly punching her.

The man is said to have told police: "I'm sorry it was a female officer. I wanted it to be a male."

It is not known if the incident in Tottenham, North London, was an initiation, but since attacks in Islington, Hackney, and Haringey officers were warned to stay in contact with HQ.

A Met source said: "The top brass are taking this very seriously."
