Police are continuing to appeal for information and video footage following reports of a teenager with a knife in Culcheth.
At around 9.30pm on Saturday 13 November, police were called to reports of anti-social behaviour on Shaw Street, involving a group of around 20 youths who were shouting and causing a disturbance.
The caller stated that they had approached the group and asked them to leave.
During the incident one of the group, a teenage boy who was stood approximately six to 10 foot away, pulled a machete style knife out of his pants.
No threats were made towards the victim and the teenager ran off over the playing field.
Inspector Ruth Atherton said: “I understand the concern this incident is likely to cause and we are doing all we can to establish what took place.
“We’ve not any reports of any incidents of a similar nature, however patrols have also been stepped up in the area to provide reassure local residents.”
Officers investigating the incident have since arrested an 18-year-old man.
The teenager was arrested at around 12pm on Thursday 18 November at an address in Latchford on suspicion of affray and possession of a knife.
He has since been released on bail pending further enquiries.
Enquiries in relation to the incident are ongoing and anyone with any information or video footage is asked to call Cheshire Police on 101 or visit www.cheshire.police.uk/tua, quoting IML 1131805.
