Normanby: Man holds Knife to Baby's Throat


Another shocking knife crime in England. When will our politicians stand up and take note? The people of England are literally being robbed, stabbed and murdered in broad daylight on our streets and the government take no action. This time the victim was a baby...

Police are hunting for an “Asian male” with a “foreign accent” who put a knife to the throat of a 19-month baby during a street robbery in Normanby, England.

“The incident happened on Friday as the victim, a woman in her 40s, was taking her 19-month-old grandson for a walk.

“She was pushing the pushchair along the footpath in the wooded area off Ormesby Road, Normanby, when a man came out of the bushes in front of her and demanded her purse.

“When the victim refused the man produced a knife and placed it to her grandchild’s throat. The victim then handed over her purse and the man ran off towards Normanby High Street.”

Police described the suspect as an “Asian male” in his early to mid-twenties, around 6-feet tall, with a “foreign accent” and “very bad teeth”.

DC Lewis Mackfall for Cleveland Police said:“This was clearly a terrifying incident for the victim and very distressing as it involved a threat of violence against her grandchild."

“We’re appealing for anyone who might have seen a man matching this description to speak to us urgently by calling 101 with reference number 086712.”

Already in May, 100 people have been knifed to death in England and Wales. Last year saw the highest number of deaths by knife crime since records began. Who
