City centre brought to a halt after knife scare yesterday
It followed a dispute in the area
The city centre was brought to a halt after police attended a “knife scare” incident in Fargate.
An ambulance responder and three police cars were called to the scene on December 8th at around 12.50pm, after a man was noticed carrying a knife.
Busy Christmas shoppers and trams heading away from the Cathedral were stopped while the matter of public safety was being investigated on York Street.
Following reports of the individual in possession of the knife, the Police sent a specialist team to the area to ensure public safety and offer reassurance after the scare.
A spokeswoman for South Yorkshire police said: “Police were called to the York Street area of Sheffield earlier today following reports an individual was in possession of a knife.
“Upon arrival, however, officers received reports that there had been a dispute between a group of people known to each other, who had left the area. No persons have been injured.”
