Mum To Sue Met Police For Arresting Her 12-Year-Old Son Playing With Toy Gun

The mother of a 12-year-old boy is taking legal action against the Met Police after they raided the family’s home and arrested him for playing with a toy gun.

Armed officers and sniffer dogs stormed the home of Kai Agyepong in Camden, north London, on the evening of July 17 after a member of the public claimed to have seen a black male holding a firearm.

In reality, it was a BB pellet gun that had been fitted with a blue slider to distinguish it from the real thing.

Kai’s mother Alice criticised the police, saying her family felt “utterly violated” by the incident and is now suing the force for racial discrimination, trespass, false imprisonment, assault and battery.
