Main article content
Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a 16-year-old boy was threatened with a machete at a bus stop in Rothwell.
At around 4.20pm on Thursday, December 2, the boy was stood at the bus stop in Kettering Road, near McColl’s, when he was approached by another teenage boy who spoke to him before threatening to stab him.
After the victim began to walk away, the suspect kicked him to the legs before slashing at him with what appeared to be a machete, striking him to the left hand with the flat of the blade, causing no injury. The victim was then able to escape and seek help.
The suspect is described as a white male, around 5ft 9in, of medium build with short dirty blonde hair. The boy wore a navy blue or black hat, dark-coloured puffer jacket, and blue and white tracksuit bottoms which were possibly Nike branded.
He had a large bruise on his right wrist at the time of the incident.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101.
