A man who threatened someone with a knife in Littleport has been charged with possession of an offensive weapon and two counts of theft from a shop.
Daniel Kennett, 36, is accused of approaching a man on the playing fields beside Littleport Leisure Centre on Tuesday evening (July 17) and threatening them whilst holding a knife.
Kennett, of Friars Place, Littleport, is due to appear at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court this morning.
Sergeant Mark Rabel said: “It isn’t often that incidents of bad behaviour are actually reported to the police which makes it difficult to identify ongoing problems in the area.
“I have asked that the community do report their concerns – and it’s easy to do either via 101 or using the Constabulary website which only takes a few minutes to do.

“I have also offered to attend a community meeting (if wished for) and I will directly listen to community concerns and if warranted put a police response plan in place.
“I will always prioritise keeping people safe and preventing crime.”
