Thanks to the quick work by officers investigating the incident, a 40-year-old man was arrested shortly after on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm without intent.

He has now been bailed with conditions as investigations continue into the incident, which happened on Wednesday 29 December at around 9.45am.

Detective Constable Paul Crofts, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Officers have now arrested a man in connection with this incident and we would like to reassure the public that we believe the victim and suspect are known to each other and there is no wider risk.

“Incidents like this and seeing a person with these sorts of injuries can be concerning for the public but as we have shown in this case we will respond quickly and do everything we can to put the pieces together and understand what has happened.

“Our enquiries are continuing into this incident but we would ask anyone who may have seen anything to come forward as it may help us with our investigation.”

Anyone with any information or who witnessed the incident is asked to call the police on 101, quoting incident number 155 of 29 December 2021.
