A man has been charged following an incident at McDonald’s in Watford Town Centre last weekend.
Herts Police said in a statement posted on their website: “On Sunday 21 May, at around 9.26pm, police were called to reports that a man had entered the McDonald’s in The Parade, High Street and had gone behind the counter, before stealing food to the value of £40.
“When a member of staff confronted him, he alleged that he had a knife, though no weapons were seen.
“The man then left the shop, reportedly approaching members of the public in the street and behaving aggressively towards them.
“Officers arrested a man in the High Street in connection with the incident, and he was taken in to police custody.
