The suspect then lunged at another officer before he was arrested.
The male has been charged with assaulting police, disarming a police officer, and assault with a weapon.
The suspect cannot be named under the provisions of the Youth and Criminal Justice Act.
The officers were not seriously hurt in the incident.
