Police save child from woman holding knife to throat

Incident from Sydney, Australia.

The footage shows a 28-year-old woman holding down a 13-year-old boy, waving a knife around and yelling “I’m going to kill someone” and repeatedly declaring she is an “ice addict”.

Police officers approached the woman from the front, while one officer came in from behind her to pull her off the teen, dragging her away before three other officers hold her to the ground.

The woman can be heard screaming while the officers detain her.

The boy then escaped and was not physically injured during the incident.

Police officer draws gun too close, is grabbed by suspect

A police officer draws her weapon and covers the suspect within arm’s reach on a bus. A struggle for the gun ensues before a second officer assists.

  • A suspect may not comply even with a gun drawn on them
  • Maintaining a safe distance is necessary even if the suspect is unarmed
  • Entering the bus was completely unnecessary in the first instance as it only created more risk due to the confined space
  • Grappling and ground fighting skills are still required even if guns are available
