A man who reportedly chased people while wearing a Friday the 13th-style mask and wielding a meat cleaver and knife has been arrested in England.

A photo of the mask and weapons was shared by Newquay police on Twitter with the message: "Imagine coming face to face with a person armed/wearing these."

Officers were called after the suspect was seen roaming the streets of the town in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Officers were assisted in the arrest by police dog 'PD Rudi', whose Twitter account posted: "Another weapon off the streets!! PD Rudi made his presence very clear and possibly was the ultimate deterrent in preventing the suspect from running away or fighting officers."

Police said they received multiple calls about the "Friday 13th-type incident".
