Detective Inspector Chris Berryman, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was an extremely serious offence that took place in the middle of the day in a busy part of Nottingham city centre.

“A 14-year-old boy is understood to have been stabbed twice during this incident, which mercifully didn’t lead to him sustaining life-altering or life-threatening injuries as a result.

“It really should go without saying but this type of behaviour is completely unacceptable and will never be tolerated by Nottinghamshire Police.

“Knife crime and violence are treated seriously by Nottinghamshire Police and we will always act swiftly to any reports of this nature that we receive.

“Our enquiries are still ongoing to establish what happened, so we’d ask anyone who witnessed this incident take place or who has any information to come forward and speak to us immediately.”
