He is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on 27 January 2023.

Inspector Karl Thomas, district commander for Nottingham South, said: “This was a good piece of police work and shows why we respond to calls as rapidly as possible.

“It is always a great result when we are able to take dangerous and potentially lethal knives off the street. Educating people about the dangers of knife crime remains a priority across Nottingham South.

“I am pleased we have charged this suspect and placed him before the courts.”
