Detective Constable Sarah Kirk, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“This must have been a frightening incident for the victim and we are determined to track down the man responsible.

“Carrying a knife in the street is dangerous and unacceptable and we know that any incident involving a weapon like this can escalate into something even more serious.

“I would also like to reassure people who live in Hucknall and visit the town centre that we believe this is an isolated incident involving people known to each other with no wider threat to the public.

“If anyone recognises the man in the image they should get in touch immediately. If you were involved in the incident I’d also urge you to do the right thing and contact the police.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 626 of 12 August 2023, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
