TWO men are to be reported to the Public Prosecution Service over an incident in Derry city centre over an incident involving a knife.
PSNI Foyle say last Monday evening a city centre police officer on cycle patrol in Waterloo Place came across a male armed with a knife.
“The male was restrained, the knife removed from him after a struggle, and he was arrested,” say police.
“During the struggle another member of the public became involved, attacked the officer, and tried to free the male.
“The officer also managed to restrain and arrest this further person, and hold them both until further police officers arrived.
“Both persons spent the night in police custody due to intoxication and reports will be sent to the Public Prosecution Service.
“The officer received minor injuries during the struggle.
On Friday, while out on cycle patrol, city centre officers checked on the well being of an intoxicated male.
“The male refused to go home,” say police.
“Police checks revealed the male was subject to Court Bail Conditions in relation to Public Order offences, and was prohibited from consuming alcohol in public.
“This male was arrested and spent the night in police custody due to intoxication.
“He will appear in court today to explain his behaviour to the local magistrate.”
