Two small children were left frightened for their lives when a knife-wielding seven-year-old calling one of them a ‘ginger little f***’ threatened to kill them.
Amelia Davis, four, and her brother Keagan, six, were playing near their home when a boy pulled out a knife and threatened them.
Kim Adams, the children’s mother, said: ‘My little boy came running into the house saying “Mum, mum, he’s put a knife up to Amelia”.
‘Amelia said ‘he put a knife to my back mummy’.
‘She was screaming and crying.
‘Keagan then told me the boy had put a knife up to him and called him a ginger little f*** and said he was going to kill him.’

Miss Adams, 27, of Bransholme, Hull, says Tuesday’s shocking incident has left her ‘feeling sick to her stomach’ and wanting to move house.
She said: ‘I just feel sick, in fact I want to move.
‘This was the first time Amelia had been allowed to play out and she was so excited. She had been asking to go out as soon as they got home from school.
‘It doesn’t bear thinking about what could have happened if he had actually used the knife.’
She claims Amelia and Keagan are still ‘shaken up’ by their ordeal.
Miss Adams said: ‘I didn’t take them to school on Wednesday as they were both shaken up.
‘They kept asking me about the boy with a knife and worried he might come back.’
Miss Adams is now warning parents in the area to be on their guard, posting an appeal on a Hull Facebook page in a bid to make people aware of what happened to her children.
Miss Adams said: ‘Other parents need to be warned about what has happened.
‘Where does a young lad get hold of a knife like that from and why don’t his parents know about what he is doing?’
The boy in question was wearing a black top, black trousers with a white stripe and had Adidas trainers on.
The family has reported the incident to the police who say it is being ‘treated as a high priority’.
Humberside Police confirmed they are investigating the incident.
A force spokesman said: ‘We were called to reports that a boy had allegedly been threatening other children with a weapon in Curlew Close, Bransholme in Hull around 5pm on September 26.
‘The children who reported the incident were shaken but no one was hurt.
‘The children have described the boy as around seven-years-old, wearing a black coat and Adidas trainers. He was riding a green bike.
‘Anyone who may have any information has been asked to call 101 quoting log 422 of 26/09/17.’
