Po­lice search for knifewield­ing man

Dubbo Photo News - - Emer­gency is­sues -

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.
