Chief Inspector Jon Foy, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Officers did a great job getting to the scene so quickly and arresting two suspects.

“We believe that those involved are in some way known to each other and that there was no wider risk to the community.

“As a police force, we are committed to reducing knife crime, with two dedicated knife crime teams working hard every day to keep people safe by tackling this issue.

“I would urge anyone who is concerned about someone they believe to carry a knife to contact the police so we can act quickly to take weapons off the streets – and the people who use them to cause harm – in our neighbourhoods.

“Investigations into this latest incident are ongoing so I would ask anyone with additional information about what happened to call us on 101 quoting incident 195 of 29 January.”
