Police arrested a 13-year-old boy for allegedly threatening to stab them last week.

Officers were on foot patrol in Crown Avenue when they saw the school pupil making swearing gestures with his hand and shouting at them.

He also threatened to “firebomb Clydebank”.

After the incident, at 3.45pm on October 8, the boy was taken home and he will be reported to the children’s panel.

Meanwhile, two schoolgirls are being sought by police for stealing about £30 in make-up and toiletries from TK Maxx last week.

The girls, in school uniforms, were seen on CCTV putting items in school bags around 2.45pm on October 3.

Police said they are following a positive line of enquiry.

Officers also arrested a 14-year-old boy allegedly caught with fireworks around 1pm on October 5.

The pupil has been reported to the children's panel and police are continuing to investigate where he obtained the explosives from.

They also issued a warning that as well as it being illegal for young people to possess fireworks or for anyone to set them off outwith bonfire night, it was an extreme danger to themselves and others.

A spokeswoman for Clydebank police said: "This youth would have lost his fingers if he had been holding the firework when it went off."
