Police search for knifewielding man
POLICE are still looking for a man who allegedly threatened some people while brandishing a knife in Lovett Avenue last Friday.
Six police vehicles were scrambled to Lovett Avenue when the call for help first came in. At least some were authorised to proceed at Code Red, which means lights, sirens and at speed. This is not something that’s governed lightly as speeding vehicles have the potential to cause injury to members of the public as well as the police officers themselves. So it’s only used when the situation seems dire.
By the time this photo (right) was taken there were already numerous police on the scene but despite the initial 000 calls for help, police said no-one wanted to share any information with them after they arrived on the scene.
