Man charged after sword threats
A 47-year-old man has been charged with affray after two men were threatened with a Samurai sword.

Police were called to Brassey Road, near the junction with Wimborne Road, in Bournemouth, on Saturday evening.

A 17-year-old boy reported being threatened and police also think a man was threatened shortly afterwards.

The victims are not thought to have been injured. The man charged has been released on bail to appear before magistrates on 25 March.
