Drunk man making knife threats arrested in Mablethorpe

Nobody was injured

Police arrested a drunk man who allegedly threatened people with a knife in Mablethorpe on Thursday evening.

It happened just before 6pm on May 6, when Lincolnshire Police received several reports that a man, thought to be under the influence, was making threats to people at the skate park on Quebec Road.

Officers rushed to the scene and, with the help of a member of public, the man was located in the nearby gardens.

He was arrested in connection with the incident and remains in police custody at this time.
