Arrests after man taken to hospital after assault in a Nottinghamshire street

Detectives have arrested two suspects after a man was assaulted in the street.

Officers were called to Mill Close, Huthwaite, following reports that a man had been assaulted with a metal object.

The man was left with facial injuries that required hospital treatment following the attack at around 2.45am today (22 August).

After acting on intelligence, officers attended an address in Shirland, Derbyshire, soon afterwards where they detained two suspects.

Following a search of a car parked outside the house, police also seized some cannabis and a hammer found inside the vehicle.

Two men, aged 20 and 22, were then arrested on suspicion of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm.

They were also further arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class B drugs.

Both remain in police custody.

Detective Sergeant Georgina Gallagher, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a nasty assault that could’ve quite easily left a man with extremely serious injuries.

“Nottinghamshire Police condemns all acts of violent behaviour and will never tolerate crimes of this nature taking place in our communities.

“After acting on intelligence, our officers managed to arrest two suspects and are still carrying out further enquiries to establish exactly what happened.

“If anyone witnessed this incident or has any information or CCTV footage that could assist our investigation, we’d ask that they get in touch with us straight away.

“Information can be left by calling police on 101, quoting incident 79 of 22 August 2022, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
