Following inquiries, a 24-year-old suspect spoke to police on the phone and later handed himself in at Central Police Station in Nottingham, where he was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

He has since been bailed with conditions while the investigation continues.

Detective Inspector Paul Lefford, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We will not tolerate this sort of violent disorder on our streets and are working tirelessly to bring those responsible to justice.

“We have arrested a suspect but our inquiries are ongoing.

“I would ask that anyone who saw what happened, has any relevant information, or has CCTV, dash-cam or mobile phone footage that could assist us comes forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 428 of 29 August 2022, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
