Rotherhithe man bailed after arrest on suspicion of possessing knife and tear gas

A man who was arrested in Rotherhithe last weekend on suspicion of possessing a knife and tear gas, has been bailed to late October.

The man, 44, was arrested on Saturday morning following reports of a man having an “unknown substance thrown on his face”.

Officers were called at 11:36am to Lower Road, SE16 with the London Ambulance Service also in attendance.

A police spokesperson said he was arrested for “what is believed to be CS Spray”, a chemical which is often used by riot police to breakup large groups of people.
