POLICE have arrested two men and are trying to find a third after a group ran off when officers approached them this afternoon (Friday).
The two men have been arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon after officers recovered a knife in the course of the chase.
A spokesman for the Met said officers approached the group of three on Abbey Road at around 2.45pm when they ran off.
Advertiser chief reporter Gareth Davies said he saw the police chase and apprehend one of the men on nearby Epsom Road.
Police were also outside a house in Borough Hill, near the junction with Epsom Road, at around 3.20pm.
A police helicopter was also involved in the search.
