A man caught by police with a 10-inch hunting knife has been jailed.
Police were on patrol in Cambridge on 7 November when they spotted Tyrique Rhodd on his bicycle.
When the 21-year-old noticed police were behind him, he cycled off at speed before abandoning the bike in New Street and running away.
Officers ran after him and after witnessing him remove a knife from his waistband and attempt to discard it, he was arrested.
At Cambridge Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (16 November), Rhodd, of no fixed address, was sentenced to six months in prison after previously pleading guilty to possession of a knife in a public place.
PC Ollie Hagen, from the Neighbourhood Support Team, said: “This was a great spot by officers who were on patrol in the area. I would encourage anyone who has information or concerns about someone who carries a knife or other weapon to report it to us.”
