Police officers were in the Artillery Street area of Wisbech when they spotted the youth on Saturday, September 25.
A Cambridgeshire police spokesperson said: “Fenland/Peterborough CCTV saw a youth in the Artillery Street park with a police style baton.
“They decided to hide it, but CCTV was watching.
“The youth was stopped by response officers assisted by the Wisbech neighbourhood policing team.”
