TWO youths are due to appear at Redditch Magistrates Court today charged in connection with an incident in the town which led to police recovering a BB gun.
Police went to the Oakenshaw area of Redditch at about 8.30pm on Sunday, March 3, after receiving a report from a member of the public that someone had been seen with a gun near the McDonald’s restaurant.
Two 17-year-old youths were arrested in the area a short time later and officers subsequently recovered a BB gun.
One of the youths was charged with possession of a BB pistol with intent to cause fear of violence and two counts of assaulting a police officer in the execution of his duty. The other youth has been charged with perverting the course of justice.
