Witnesses have described the scene in Sutton earlier this afternoon after a ‘half-naked’ man armed with knives and a woman in a dressing gown chased a male down the street.

Neighbours on Barnes Crescent and Leamington Drive alerted the Chad to the attack, after watching the two suspected attackers pursue the other male, ‘shouting and swearing’ as they pursued on foot.

“We have no reports of any injuries and no one has presented themselves as a victim. Our inquiries are ongoing.”
