Police investigating an incident in Wickham earlier this month when a man threatened people with a machete are appealing to the public for information.

Police were called shortly before 5.25pm on Thursday March 9th to reports that a man in possession of a machete was making threats to members of the public in Wickham Square.

Officers arrested a 39-year-old man from Wickham on suspicion of affray and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place. He has been released on conditional bail while our enquiries continue.

Investigating officers now have this image of three people, seen in the area at the time, who we believe may have information that could assist our enquiries.

A police spokesperson said: “If you are pictured, or if you recognise any of the three people in this image, please get in touch.

“We would also like to hear from anyone we have not yet spoken to who was in the area at the time and saw what happened.”

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting reference 44230095817.
