Thug pulls knife on 12-year-olds playing in park in sickening footage

A man was caught threatening children as young as 12 in a park, as shown in sickening footage recorded on a mobile phone.

In the clip, filmed on Friday, May 14, the man targets the youngsters at Lochend Park in Edinburgh and swings the knife around and points it towards them, Daily Record reports.

The kids, some of them screaming in terror, run away from the thug before he walks off with the blade still in his hand.

It is believed the group were aged between 12 and their early teenage years.

The man was wearing dark-coloured trousers, a grey hoodie, and a black hat during the incident.

Jordan Baillie posted the clip online in a bid to trace the culprit and said his friend's son was one of the children at the scene.

He described a row with the kids and the armed man, which occurred when he was accused of "staring" at the girls.

"The kids were all just playing and he was staring at some of the girls, he told Daily Record.

He added: "My friend's wee laddie said something about it and then he started pulling out the knife.
