A TEENAGER has been ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work, after he was found with a fearsome-looking flick knife.

Damian Rak, 18, of Ramsthorn Close, was in a car stopped by police in Queensfield, Kingsdown, in the early hours of May 29. The locking flick knife was seized.

The young man pleaded guilty to possession of a weapon. Rak, of previous good character was ordered to do 150 hours' unpaid work and pay £170 in costs and surcharge.

At the time the knife was found, PC Luke Hobbs of Swindon North community policing team, said: “After stopping the car, we searched it and were able to take a dangerous knife off of the streets - this was not your usual in-store purchase, this is clearly a weapon made and intended to cause significant harm.”
