Police have arrested a suspect after a man was reportedly stabbed in the street.

Officers were called to Gin Close Way, Awsworth, Nottinghamshire following reports that someone had been injured in a road rage incident.

A 26-year-old man was allegedly stabbed in the arm, before the suspect then drove away from the scene at around 10.20am on Sunday (22 May) 2022.

The man was taken to hospital for treatment after sustaining injuries that aren’t believed at this stage to be life-altering.

Police arrested a 32-year-old man a short time later on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent and driving while under the influence of drugs.

He has been released on conditional bail.

Detective Sergeant Katie Hurrell, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We take all reports of knife crime extremely seriously and will always take robust action against anyone found to be involved in offences of this nature, so that we can keep people safe.

“It really should go without saying but there is never an excuse for anyone to ever carry a knife with them while out in public, as this puts both the person carrying it and others in danger of harm.

“We have now arrested a suspect in connection with this incident but our enquiries remain ongoing.

“If anyone witnessed what happened or has CCTV or dash-cam footage that could aid us with our investigation, it’s important that they get in touch with us straight away.”

Anyone with information can contact the police on 101, quoting incident 224 of 22 May 2022.
