Shoppers have watched in horror while teenage girls threatened Coles staff with a knife yesterday.

Details of the incident emerged after Salvation Army head Brendan Nottle told Neil Mitchell the state needed to introduce a knife amnesty amid a growing problem with knife crime.

After that interview, Geoff told Neil Mitchell two teenage girls, one in school uniform, made verbal threats against his wife while she worked in the Werribee Coles yesterday.

The situation escalated when security stepped in, with one of the girls producing a knife.

No-one was injured and the two teenagers fled before police arrived.

“She’s shocked mate, she’s absolutely shocked,” Geoff said of his wife.
