Dashcam shows pedestrian taking out knife-carrying cyclist

SHARE

This dashcam video shows the moment two members of the public tackled a man, said to have been carrying a hunting knife, as he was fleeing police on a bicycle in central Cardiff, Wales. The footage, captured by Andy Brown as he was stopped at a red light on Castle Street, first shows police vehicles passing Brown’s vehicle, moving in the opposite direction. Moments later, a cyclist appears in front of Brown’s car and is immediately shoved off the bike by a pedestrian in a blue jacket. The cyclist gets to his feet and tries to run away but is then chased by two other members of the public. A fourth man tackles the cyclist a second time, making him fall to the ground again. The cyclist is then surrounded by the two men who chased him and the second man who tackled him. A police vehicle rushes in, and the cyclist is arrested. According to Wales Online, the cyclist, named as 20-year-old Muaz Tarafdar, appeared at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court, and pleaded guilty to possession of a knife in a public place. He was sentenced to six months in prison and ordered to pay a £115 ($164) surcharge, the report said.
