An 11-year-old boy has been arrested for the alleged assault of a police officer, after they'd been called to a knife alert in a park in the West Midlands.
Members of the public had called West Midlands Police after witnessing a suspect threatening people with a knife in Tividale Park in Sandwell.
A youth, who cannot be named, was found in possession of a knife at around 12.30pm on Thursday, August 13.
But during the arrest one of the officers was assaulted, a spokesman for the force's press office confirmed to Birmingham Live.
In a tweet, a spokesman added: "Officers from the Guardian task force attended a disorder in a Sandwell park where a male was threatening people with a knife.
"An 11-year-old boy who was found in possession of this knife assaulted an officer and has been arrested."
In England and Wales, the maximum sentence for carrying a knife illegally is four years in prison and an unlimited fine.
If injury is caused, or a knife was used to commit a crime, the penalties could increase.
