A man approached two teenage boys in a park before pulling a knife and threatening them.

It happened at the recreation ground in Harleston between 8-9pm on Saturday, July 3.

After a verbal spat between the man, aged in his 30s or 40s, and the two teens, the man grabbed one of them and pulled a multi-tool knife before threatening him.

The two teens ran off, but the man approached them again later after two teenage girls had joined them.

They all ran off, but the man pursued one of the girls on his bike through the London Road exit.
