“Officers subsequently arrested a 22-year-old man on suspicion of a number of offences, including possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, disorderly behaviour and criminal damage. He remains in custody, assisting with enquiries.

“Our enquiries are continuing and we are appealing to anyone with information, or who may have captured dash cam footage, to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 1414 of 11/03/20.”
