Arrests after door staff assaulted and racially abused at Notts pub

Officers have made four arrests following reports that two door staff at a pub were assaulted and threatened.

A group of men allegedly approached them and, became racially abusive. The two men were then reportedly assaulted and one of them sustained injuries, which he is now said to be recovering from.

Twenty-five minutes later, the same group are alleged to have returned in a car and threatened the pair again.

Officers investigating have since arrested four men aged 31,  33, 34 and 44 on suspicion of affray. They continue their enquiries into the incident outside Rewind 2 in Carlton Road, Worksop, at around 1.25am on Saturday (13 November 2021).

Detective Constable Jann Olsen, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “It is disgraceful that someone going about their normal day’s work has being subjected to abuse and threats.

“In particular, the injuries sustained accompanied with racial abuse is unacceptable.

“We hope our quick action to arrest and interview four men offers the public reassurance of just how seriously we take incidents such as this, and local officers will continue to be in the area and available to talk to anyone with information or concerns.

“The men have been bailed with conditions and our enquiries continue.

“We would urge anyone who was in the area at the time, witnessed the incident or has any information to get in touch with us on 101, quoting incident 57 of 13 November 2021.”

Members of the public can also report information anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
