He remains in custody and is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday morning (12 July).

Sergeant Catherine Edwards, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Officers did a brilliant job to quickly arrive at this incident and detain the suspect.

“We are satisfied this was an isolated incident and that there was no wider threat to the public.

“Thankfully no-one was injured in this incident but whenever there is a knife involved, there is always the potential for far more serious consequences.

“Nottinghamshire Police takes reports of knife crime very seriously and will always look to take robust action against offenders.”
