THIS is the bizarre moment a tiny kid clutching a large knife demands a ride on a teen’s scooter – in a town currently plagued by a group of travellers.
The shirtless youngster brazenly walks up to a group of older boys in a park in Cambourne, Cambridgeshire, and yells “gimme a go” repeatedly while brandishing the blade.
The footage was filmed in the newly built town which has been recently seen a group of travellers occupying playing fields.
The group, which includes 20 to 30 vehicles, have been in the settlement since Thursday and have been issued with a formal deadline to leave.
In the video the young boy swipes the knife through the air as he angrily clenches his fist and shouts the order at the group.
He appears to furiously try and threaten the group to let him have a go on the scooter but they refuse and laugh at him.
A member of the group says: “No go away, this is what you do, you come here and you just try to hurt everyone.
“P*** off, this is going to the feds by the way.”
The child, who briefly held the knife behind his back, suddenly yells in frustration at the camera and runs away.
The person filming then says: “That’s it, run away… buy a shirt blud.”
The incident comes after the seaside town of Cromer saw dozens of travellers evicted after a string of thefts and disturbances left it on “lockdown”.
The resort was plunged into chaos as police were called to a series of incidents over a 24-hour period.
In a separate case earlier this year a woman sparked debate after revealing her friend’s son was given a party bag containing a knife while celebrating his friend’s birthday.
The woman revealed on Mumsnet that her friend’s son, seven, had been to an “outdoor activities birthday party” before being given a party bag as he left.
And this was the chilling moment cops arrested a young man and recovered a huge machete on a packed London street.
Shocking footage showed the dramatic arrest taking place in Barking, East London this week.
Earlier this month a councillor was slammed for branding travellers “thieves” with “filthy ways”.
