Friday afternoon saw a 23-year-old Hamilton man arrested and charged for chasing a group of teenagers down the street while brandishing a knife.

The incident occurred just after 1 p.m. on August 18 in the area of Locke Street and Melbourne Street in Hamilton.

The man was seen approaching the teens, allegedly focusing on a female member of the group and chasing her down, splitting the friends up after being confronted. He was unable to catch up with the female.

The man has been charged with Assault with a Weapon and Failing to Comply with a Release Order. Thankfully, nobody was injured in the incident, but it sounds pretty damn frightening for the teenagers involved.

His court date is set for Saturday, August 22, 2020.
