UK police have been filmed questioning a man after it was alleged he offended somebody on Facebook.

Officers requested the man undergo a voluntary interview at the police station for the alleged crime of “malicious communications.”

The officer defined “malicious communications” as a comment “on an open forum, which is social media, which is deemed to be offensive.”

Meanwhile, the number of knife crimes in England and Wales has risen to a new record high, according to the Office for National Statistics.

BBC News reported on Friday that there were 46,265 offences in the 12 months to the end of March this year, up 6% from the previous year.

“There was also a large rise in cases of murder and manslaughter, with 683 deaths,” according to the outlet.

Excluding the 39 people found dead inside a lorry in Essex last year, homicides increased by 3%. Of all the killings 256 involved a knife or sharp object, up from 250 the previous year. There were also 619 offences involving corrosive substances, such as acid.
