A proactive unit in the Metropolitan Police undoubtedly saved a juveniles life yesterday afternoon (7th Sept) after they spotted three males chasing another male, whilst being armed with various weapons, including so-called ‘zombie knives’.
Officer’s from the Met’s Territorial Support Group (TSG) were on patrol in Dalston, Hackney, when they spotted three youths who were chasing another child.
The three male youths who were chasing the victim, were armed with an array of different weapons, including a so-called ‘zombie knife’ and a machete.
The proactive unit, callsign ‘Uniform 32’ immediately began to chase after the three armed youths who attempted to run away from the officers.
The three suspects went to ground in a bid to try and hide from the officers.
However, thanks to the help of local residents, all three males were found and subsequently arrested by the police.
The three weapons which were being carried by the youths were also seized as evidence and will eventually be destroyed by the police.
A spokesperson for the unit tweeted:
‘Had officers not been in the right place this could have been a very different ending’.
Officer’s from the Met’s Central North Violence Suppression Unit had been carrying out a weapon’s sweep on the estate in N19 when they found the deadly weapons.
The knives were also seized by officers and will be destroyed at a later date.
