The incident took place between 6pm and 7pm on Monday, March 25 at Eaton Park in Norwich.

A 17-year-old has been charged with assault, possession of a bladed weapon and affray.

A police spokesman said: “No-one was stabbed but it appears that a scuffle broke out and two girls sustained cuts to their hands.

“A girl was arrested after reports that she had been waving a knife at a group of other girls.
