While on his patrols the Letchworth CCTV operator monitors a male in wheel chair waving something around his head in the Ivel Court Shops in the Jackmans Estate in Letchworth.
The male appeared to be distressing all the people in the shopping area and had been previously monitored in the area on other occasions exercising signs anti-social behaviour.
The male is then seen to put the item into his chair and shout at others. Meanwhile the operator had used the Partnerships direct line to the police control room and had officers on route to the male.
Police officers arrive and locate the item in the male’s chair and discovered it was a fairly large knife hidden into a metal tube and this had been the item he had been waving around.
The male was arrested and charged for possession of a bladed article.
