A 30-year-old man from Mansfield, has been charged with wounding with intent, robbery, burglary, threatening a person with an offensive weapon in a private place, possession of a knife in a public place and possession of cannabis.

He appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday (18 July), was remanded in custody and is next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 15 August 2022.

Detective Sergeant Matt Dumbrell, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Thanks to some good work by officers a man has been charged and remanded in connection with these distressing incidents which happened in the victims’ own homes – where they should feel safe. Understandably they were left very shaken by what happened.

“Violent crime of this nature has no place in our neighbourhoods. I’d like to reassure people we will always investigate any incidents reported to us and do everything in our power to seek justice for victims while providing them with support.”
