The first incident occurred on Sunday, October 22, 2023, around 7.30pm. Page entered a shop on Laceby Road and brandished a meat cleaver, intimidating the staff. As he attempted to empty the shop’s tills into his bag, a courageous staff member tackled him, disarming him in the process. Page fled the scene empty-handed, leaving behind the weapon and the bag of cash.

An investigation led officers to Page’s address, where they discovered distinctive clothing that he had worn during the offence. Some of the clothing was partially burnt outside the property. Further inquiries revealed that Page had also threatened individuals with a meat cleaver outside another shop on Laceby Road just two days prior.
