Arrest after brick thrown through Nottingham city job centre window

A man has been arrested following an incident of criminal damage in Nottingham city centre.

Police were called at 9.10am today (16 January) after a brick was thrown through a window at a job centre in Upper Parliament Street.

Officers attended but the person responsible had left the scene.

Shortly before 2:45 pm, officers were informed the man had returned and was behaving aggressively.

This led to a strong police presence while the 47-year-old suspect was arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage.

He was further arrested for assault after a police officer was punched in the face.

Sergeant Jono Pothecary, of the Nottingham City Centre neighbourhood policing team, said:

“I’d like to thank members of the public for their patience while we dealt with these two incidents.

“A man is now in custody in relation to these offences and there is no wider risk to the public.

“This kind of behaviour is completely unacceptable and will always be met with a robust response from officers.”
