Police tracked down and arrested a suspect following a knifepoint robbery in Nottingham.
Officers were called to Noel Street, Forest Fields, at 4.30am this morning following a report that a man was being attacked.
Upon arrival, the officers found a 24-year-old man who said he had been punched repeatedly by a robber who had a knife.
The victim had a slash wound on his forearm which required treatment in hospital.
A description of the alleged attacker was provided and officers went looking for him.
A short time later, a 30-year-old man was arrested at a nearby tram stop on suspicion of robbery.
The suspect was later further arrested after an officer was spat at and homophobic slurs made.
He remains in custody today for questioning.
Detective Constable Steve Willetts, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Violent crime and behaviour of this kind has no place in our city and we work incredibly hard to tackle violence in all its forms.
“Response officers did well to track down and detain the suspect so quickly after the incident was reported to us.
“While we have made an arrest, we would still like anyone who witnessed this incident to contact us on 101 quoting incident number 106 of 19 February 2022.”
