Two women have come forward and been questioned by police in Bath in connection with two alleged knife incidents in Royal Victoria Park.
The women, aged 25 and 24, came to the police station voluntarily yesterday afternoon, Thursday, after seeing the public appeal for information.
They have been bailed pending further inquiries.
Officers would like to thank everyone who saw the police appeal and who contacted them.
The two separate incidents happened on Tuesday afternoon, 24th June, at around 5.30-5.45pm.
The first was near the bandstand when a 31-year-old man walking past intervened in a disturbance. Two people, one a young woman and the other possibly a man, both with waist-length hair, started following him.
They asked for money and one produced a knife with an eight-inch blade and a four-inch black handle. They followed the man through the Charlotte Street car park and into Crescent Gardens, where he stopped a passing police car and reported what had happened.
The second incident was a few minutes later near the park’s duck pond. A 34-year-old woman walking past was approached by the two people and asked for money.
One threatened to cut her, and she noticed what appeared to be the handle of a knife in the person’s trouser pocket.
She walked on and called police.
