Man armed with a knife forces way into Meadows home and threatens couple

A man who allegedly barged his way into a couple’s flat before threatening them both and smashing their television set has been arrested.

The Nottingham couple from The Meadows were at home with a flatmate when just before 11pm there was a knock at the door.

The flatmate opened the door at the Wilford Crescent address and a man stormed in, armed with a knife and wine bottle.

The man made threats to the couple and damaged a bedroom door and the television before leaving.

Police were called and their enquiries quickly led to the arrest of a 33-year-old man on suspicion of aggravated burglary and criminal damage.

Detective Constable Daniel Maddick, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are satisfied this was an isolated incident and that there is no wider threat to the community.

“Officers did a fantastic job to quickly respond to the incident and make initial enquiries that led to an arrest.

“Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident and we are now working hard to establish the circumstances.

“Burglary is very serious and whenever a weapon is involved there is always the potential for something far more dangerous to happen.”
