Image released after man spat at in a Nottingham park

Officers have released an image of a man they wish to trace after an altercation at Woodthorpe Grange Park.

The incident happened at around 10.37am on Tuesday 20 February.

A 61-year-old man was walking in the park when he noticed a man shouting at a woman near the playground.

The man then approached the 61-year-old and hurled abuse at him. He later saw the suspect at the top of the alleyway near Woodthorpe Grange, Nottingham.

The suspect has then threatened, spat and pushed the victim, before leaving the area.

“If you know the person or you are the person in the image, please get in touch as soon as possible.”
