Big knife is seized from boy, 13, as he’s caught by crowd ‘after trying to rob phones’

SCHOOLBOY with a kitchen knife was disarmed by furious locals after allegedly trying to rob kids’ phones.

Shocking footage shows the moment the lad, 13, handed over a massive concealed blade in the street.

Witnesses claim the youngster tried to mug another boy, 12, at knife point before local residents saw him.

He was chased down a residential road in suburban Rainham, East London, and held by a group of people.

In the video, the lad is challenged by two men, with one shouting “give him the knife…. put it on the floor”.

One local resident in a hooded top takes the blade from the teen and holds it up to the camera.

The man can be heard fuming: “Do you think that’s funny? Don’t go round robbing 12 year old kids.”

A number of onlookers formed a crowd around the lad before the police were called and he was arrested.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed the teenager was held after he “was seen to be carrying a knife”.

A force spokesman said: “The incident occurred in the Rainham area.

“The footage has been reviewed by officers from East Area BCU who are now investigating.
