Mobile phone triggers knife attack at Lord's
The police had to be called to the first Test between England and West Indies at Lord's a fortnight ago after a Marylebone Cricket Club member threatened another with a knife for using a mobile phone in the members' stand.
The Sunday Telegraph reported that the incident happened on July 23, the opening day of the Test match. According to the paper, the mobile-phone user is believed to have said that he was playing a computer game, only to be confronted with the sharp edge of a knife.
The MCC displays signs around the ground requesting spectators not to use mobile phones, and after the intervention of several members, the knife-wielder is said to have fled the ground. The MCC has launched an investigation, and a police spokesperson gave some more details. "We were called to the Upper Tavern, a stand at Lord's cricket ground, on July 23 after a man aged 37 allegedly drew a knife on another man, aged 46," he said. "When police arrived the suspect had left. No weapons have been recovered."
