Machete recovered after disturbance in Nottinghamshire


Police recovered this machete and arrested a man after swiftly responding to a report of a disturbance in Ollerton yesterday (Wednesday 25 March 2020).

Officers were quickly on the scene after being called to an address on Wellow Green at 2.50 pm following a report that a man was outside a property armed with a machete.

The suspect left the address on a bicycle but after a description was given to officers they quickly located him. He was arrested on suspicion of possession of a bladed article and criminal damage. He remains in custody.

Following the arrest, officers found a machete which had been discarded in a bush.

Nottinghamshire Police’s commitment to tackling knife crime has continued this week by supporting Operation Sceptre – a national amnesty and week of action.

Operation Sceptre, which runs until midnight on Sunday 29 March, includes a knife amnesty as a major part of the activity but is also shining a light on the other work the force does to tackle knife crime – including community weapons sweeps.
