Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police, a man has been convicted of affray and knife possession following an incident in Leadenhall.
Issa Kasim, aged 18, of Towan Avenue, Fishermead, pleaded guilty at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (2/3) to the two offences.
It relates to an incident on a Redway in Leadenhall on Tuesday 28 February, in which members of the public observed Kasim, running along the Redway chasing a boy, while he was brandishing a knife.
No one was injured following this incident but officers conducted an investigation. Kasim was arrested on Thursday and charged and remanded the same day, which led to his guilty plea.
Kasim has been further remanded to appear at Aylesbury Crown Court for sentencing on 31 March 2023.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Daisy Hincks of CID based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “This incident involving a knife outside a school has clearly caused concern amongst our community
“Kasim’s choice to carry a weapon has led to him spending time in prison on remand whilst he awaits his sentence.
“As part of Op Deter, which was launched in Milton Keynes we have a zero tolerance approach to knife crime in Milton Keynes and will continue to disrupt and robustly deal with those who choose to carry knives in our city.
“Alongside this, our work with schools, youth organisations and charities continues to safeguard young people from becoming involved in criminality.”
