Well done to East Area’s Violent Suppression Unit who removed two very dangerous knives off our street this week. On Monday 20 June Team 4 were patrolling Academy Way in Dagenham due to an attempted knife point robbery having taken place the day before. Whilst patrolling this estate the team noticed a group of males standing outside of one the blocks.
As officers approached the males, two made off and officers gave chase. One male was then seen discarding a large machete. Tasers were then drawn and both males were successfully detained.
Admissions were then made to knife possessions and a second male was found in possession of cannabis and an offensive weapon.
Great work by our Violence Suppression Unit!
