A man armed with a knife has been arrested after a police pursuit and a foot chase in Kidbrooke on Sunday, as a number of local police operations have resulted in arrests and seizures.

Greenwich Met Police reported that a male had been detained on January 31 and currently remains in custody.

This follows an incident which saw south east London's Violence Suppression Unit in pursuit of a moped through the streets of Kidbrooke, in Greenwich.

The police chase ended when the moped crashed into a tree, but the suspect then attempted to flee on foot.

After a short foot chase, a male was arrested and both a knife (pictured) and drugs were recovered.
