A man has been held in custody on suspicion of attempted armed robbery of a taxi, which triggered British Transport Police officers to chase him down on foot.


Mayhem erupted in Bath on Monday 3 May after the alleged attempted armed robbery of a taxi outside of a busy Bath station.

The suspect was believed to be armed with a knife and was thought to have tried to steal a taxi, British Transport Police say. 

A tweet from British Transport Police Specials reads: "Following a foot chase in Bath by sergeant James and with the assistance of ASP Bath, a male who was believed to be armed with a knife has been arrested on suspicion of armed robbery after he attempted to steal a taxi from the station."
