A man has been charged after a property was damaged with an axe. 

Officers stopped a suspect just after 1.15 pm on Sunday (11 February) after spotting him walking down an alleyway off Argyle Street, Radford.

An axe was found during a search and immediately seized.

The officers went looking for the suspect after the front door of a house on Leroy Wallace Avenue, Radford, was damaged minutes earlier.

A 36-year-old man from Nottingham, has now been charged with possession of an offensive weapon in a public place and criminal damage.

He was remanded into custody to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on 12 February.

PC Michael Plant, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Thanks to the actions of officers and their quick response we have been able to take a potentially dangerous weapon off our streets and put a man before the courts. 

“It’s important that we continue to reiterate that the use of weapons will never be tolerated on our streets. 

“We have now charged a man in connection with this incident and our investigation continues.”
