A WOMAN has been charged after a young girl was threatened with a pair of scissors in the town centre earlier this week.
Osarere Isaac, 28, of Windermere Road, has been charged with attempted section 18 wounding.
A police spokesperson told the Chronicle: “Just before 2pm on Tuesday it is reported that a woman approached a five-year-old girl near the Glass Works and grabbed her, before threatening her with a pair of scissors.
“The girl was unharmed in the incident.
“Isaac appeared before Barnsley Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday and has been remanded into police custody to appear before court at a later date.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
