Police are searching for a man in a wheelchair seen brandishing a knife in West London.

He allegedly charged at members of the public and schoolchildren on October 18 as he held the knife at a bus stop in Hayes town centre.

It was not reported to police at the time and no injuries were reported but an investigation was launched after the footage circulated on social media according to MyLondon.  

The clip was uploaded on October 18 and the comments suggested it was not the first time the man had allegedly wielded a knife.

People do not seem to realise he has a knife at first but begin to scream when they spot what he is holding. People are seen running out of the man’s way and one runs into the road.

Eventually he is wheeled away by another man after he charges at two groups, according to MyLondon.

The video was posted on TikTok and had 300,000 views but it has since been removed.  

Police are appealing for information about Monday’s events in Hayes.
