The incident happened outside Radford Road Police Station and officers swiftly rushed to detained Sherwood, pursuing him as he attempted to flee the scene. The knife, which was around 30cm long, was recovered, having been disposed of as he ran.

Sherwood pleaded guilty on 18 March 2019. He was convicted of possessing a bladed article in public and affray and sentenced on 18 March.

PC Kelly Bazaz, the investigating officer, said: “I would like to recognise the bravery of my colleagues, who ran towards Sherwood despite him being armed with a large knife which he was clearly not afraid of brandishing. Sherwood had no thought for the safety of the public and his actions can only be described as having complete disregard for the law. Knife crime is something which Nottinghamshire Police take extremely seriously and I’m pleased to see that Sherwood has been given a custodial sentence and one more knife has been taken off the streets.”
