Three 16-year-old boys and a 20-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of affray and remain in police custody. The 20-year-old was also arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class B drug.

Detectives are now analysing CCTV footage to find out exactly what happened and want to hear from anyone with information.

Detective Sergeant Al Prentice, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Thanks to the quick response of officers on duty in the city last night we were able to arrest four suspects in connection with this incident and prevent further disorder.

“We will never tolerate this sort of behaviour and violent incidents like this should not be a part of our nighttime economy.

“We are working hard on the investigation and I hope the speed of our response provides some reassurance to the public about just how seriously we take reports of this nature.

“The fight broke out in a busy city street and will have been seen by a number of people.

“As we work to understand exactly what happened, we want to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and could have important information.”

Anyone who has any information about what happened, or has any mobile phone footage of the incident, is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 25 of 4 April 2024, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
