Yesterday, officers were alerted to a robbery offence that had happened on Bentley Bridge. A young male had been threatened with a large kitchen knife and another male was holding a baseball bat.
Area searches were immediately conducted for the offenders and shortly after, two males were detained near to New Cross hospital by our PCSO’s and subsequently arrested by our PC’s for robbery and possession of a bladed article and an offensive weapon, both are currently still in police custody.
Councillor Phil Bateman said ” This was a particular good piece of work. Many people will be pleased because of the potentially dangerous activity of the two men and the allegation of the threats made.”
