Detective Sergeant Charlotte Henson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“This was a nasty incident that left the victim requiring hospital treatment.

“We have been working hard to investigate the incident and I am pleased a suspect is now in custody.

“I hope this arrest is a warning and deterrent to others who think such senseless behaviour will be tolerated in our communities.”
