A 31-year-old has been charged with making threats to kill and production of cannabis.
The charges relate to an incident at around 2pm on Sunday (8 November 2020) where the force received a 999-call from a victim reporting that she had been threatened.
Detective Sergeant Tom Carver is leading the investigation. He said: “Officers were quickly on the scene yesterday afternoon and arrested two men in connection with the incident.
“A 31-year-old man was arrested and has since been charged.
“Officers made a second arrest with a 34 year-old man also being detained on suspicion of witness intimidation. He remains in police custody.
“I hope that other victims of domestic abuse that read this, come forward and contact the police, find the courage and speak out.
“The Covid-19 lockdown period is a difficult time for people, particularly those who are isolated and suffering domestic abuse.
“I would urge anybody suffering from such abuse to come forward and contact the police on 101, or contact our local partner agencies who can provide the right support and advice to keep you safe.”
Javal McDonald, 31, of Basford will appear in court later today (9 November 2020).
