Man in hospital after being stabbed in the chest at a bus stop

Detectives investigating a stabbing at a bus stop have charged a suspect.

Officers were called to Droversdale Road, Bircotes, Bassetlaw, following reports that a man had been seriously assaulted.

A 37-year-old man had to be taken to hospital with injuries not currently believed to be life-altering after being stabbed in the chest.

Charnock, of Winchester Mews, Bircotes, Bassetlaw, is still in custody and is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court later today (27 September).

Detective Sergeant Jackie Price, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a violent assault that could’ve quite easily resulted in the victim suffering much more serious injuries.

“There is absolutely no excuse for anyone to carry a knife on the streets – for the simple reason that they’re incredibly dangerous as this incident has shown.

“Nottinghamshire Police condemns all forms of violence and we will always respond robustly to every report we receive of this nature, so that we can ensure our communities are kept safe for everyone.”
