He said,’I was walking and I saw a security guy pull the person from the car. He was holding a machete inside the car. The security guys saw him and stopped him. They pulled him out of the car and started hitting him.’ the 23-year-old Cardiff local told Unilad.

George also claims he saw the man earlier painting the faces of crowds who had gathered in the Welsh capital to see Justin Bieber’s Purpose tour.

George also said he had been ‘terrified’ by the scenes but praised the police response, claiming they were on the scene in ‘about 20 seconds’.
