The victim’s injuries, although serious, were not thought to be life threatening.

South Wales Police’s firearms unit were deployed as part of the operation.

South Wales Police Detective Inspector Gareth Jones said: “Carrying a knife in public shows an utter disregard to the community. Detectives will continue to crack down on criminal activities on our streets and we will pursue those who carry knives.

“My message to those who think about carrying knives is don’t. If you do carry one you will be caught. We are constantly working behind the scenes to disrupt the supply and use of weapons and prevent violent crime. My appeal to the public is if you see people carrying knives please call us.”
