Arrest after car crash leads to alleged knife threat

A man was reportedly threatened with a knife after seeing two people tampering with his car.

It’s alleged that the man saw two other men taking the windscreen wipers off his vehicle on Monday night (18 October 2021) and, after confronting them in Bainbridge Road, Warsop, he was threatened verbally.

The following day, it is reported he received a threatening video call before a man later returned to the street and threatened him with a knife.

Shortly after, officers patrolling the area came across a crash on the street involving two vehicles believed to belong to the man and the suspect.

Officers were flagged down and told of the incidents, and shortly after they arrested a 22 year-old-man on suspicion of making threats with a bladed article.

He was later also arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage in relation to the crash.

Sergeant Ian Holmes, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Officers were swift in their efforts to proactively respond to the report they received and bring a suspect into custody.

“We hope that this action offers reassurance of just how seriously these reports are taken, and that officers will respond quickly when they receive reports or are flagged down by a member of the public in the street.

“Enquiries are ongoing but we do believe the people involved are known to each other.

“We would urge anyone with information to get in touch on 101, quoting incident 286 of 19 October 2021.”
