Officers investigating the incident, which took place at around 4.50pm on 22 August 2022, carried out door-to-door inquiries and studied CCTV footage from a host of different venues.

Detective Sergeant Rob Palethorpe, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We have worked hard on the investigation and arresting this suspect is an important step.

“This was a nasty assault which has had a serious impact on the victim.

“Having sustained a broken jaw, he was in hospital for six days and required a metal plate to be surgically implanted for the rest of his life. Added to this was the financial loss he endured while recovering from surgery and being unable to work.”
