Boy arrested on suspicion of having a knife in public after incidents in Hungerford
A SEVENTEEN-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of affray and possession of a knife in public following two linked incidents in Hungerford.
He remains in police custody at this time.
The arrest is in connection with two linked incidents on Morley Place and Priory Avenue between 11am and 1pm on Friday, April 30, when a man was assaulted.
In the first incident, at approximately 11.15am in Morley Place, a man in a cream-coloured Mini One vehicle was struck in the face.
Then, at approximately 12.30pm in Priory Avenue, the same suspect, along with two other men, blocked the road, preventing the same Mini from passing.
During this incident, one of the men was holding a hammer and approached the front seat passenger, hitting him with the hammer and making threats to him.
A 23-year-old man from Hungerford was previously arrested on suspicion of assault by beating and making threats to kill and has been released under investigation.
