Benjamin has also been charged with possession of a knife in a public place.

A police spokesman said: ‘We were called at 12.54pm on Monday, April 15 after a 54 year-old female security officer was threatened with a knife and pushed to the floor outside Tesco Express in Forton Road.

‘No-one was seriously hurt and nothing was taken.’

All three have been remanded to appear at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court this morning.
