Police have made an appeal for dash-cam footage following a street fight involving clashes on car bonnets on a busy city centre street.
Officers investigating the incident believe there were taxis and other vehicles in the area whose drivers will have seen what happened and may have video footage that could be vital in the investigation.
Police were called to Nottingham city centre to reports of a large group causing disruption in Stoney Street, before they were made aware of concerns that there had been an assault in Broadway.
Within 10 minutes, several units were on scene, moving to Upper Parliament Street following further reports of a group fighting. Two men were then found with suspected stab wounds to their legs. They were taken to hospital for treatment, but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening or altering.
Ten arrests have been made following the incident, which began at around 3.30am on Sunday (5 December 2021).
Two men, aged 19 and 22, were arrested on suspicion of affray, possessing a bladed article and causing grievous bodily harm.
Two women, aged 18, and six other men, aged 19 , 20, 22, 23 , 27 and 42 were also arrested on suspicion of affray.
Officers investigating the incident are now appealing for dash-cam footage from cars in the area at the time.
Detective Sergeant Alan Prentice, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We believe a number of vehicles were around the area of Lower Parliament Street and Clumber Street at the time that the group were suspected to be in the area, and we are asking for any drivers with dash-cam footage to get in touch.
“Carrying weapons and causing this type of disruption is absolutely unacceptable and officers swiftly responded and made a number of arrests. We would, however, reiterate that this incident is thought to involve people who were in some way known to each other and that there is no wider risk to the public.
“The majority of people simply want to enjoy their night out and we are committed to ensuring Nottingham remains the safe and enjoyable place that it is to do this. We continue our enquiries and anyone with dash-cam footage is urged to get in touch with us on 101, quoting incident 125 of 5 December 2021.”
