Man threatened on his doorstep in St Ann’s

Police arrested a suspect after a man was threatened on his own doorstep.

Officers were called to St Ann’s Valley, St Ann’s, Nottingham, at around 5:50 pm on Monday (15 May) after reports a man tried to kick in the door of a home.

He had been found asleep outside the property and when asked to move on had become aggressive.

A 42-year-old man matching the description of the offender was located in St Ann’s Well Road and arrested on suspicion of a public order offence.

When response officers searched the suspect they found a knife and he was further arrested on suspicion of possession of a bladed article in a public place.

Sergeant Amy Billington, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We responded quickly to this incident – as we always do when we receive reports of people being threatened in this way.

“The officer who attended located a suspect after speaking to the victim, getting a good description of the suspect and providing reassurance. He then carried out an exemplary search of the suspect to locate the knife and take it off the streets.

“It was an excellent piece of police work.

“Carrying a knife in public is incredibly reckless and dangerous – both to the individual in possession of the blade and anyone they come into contact with. Stopping people from picking up a knife in the first place is our ultimate aim for tackling knife crime.

“I am pleased we have made an arrest but the investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with any information should call police on 101, quoting incident number 625 of 15 May 2023, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”

Nottinghamshire Police is shining a light on the work being done to crackdown on knife crime throughout this week, as part of national campaign Operation Sceptre.
