While in custody the woman was further arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug.

Following further enquiries, involving numerous police teams, officers arrested a 19-year-old man this morning on suspicion of wounding with intent. He remains in custody.

Detective Inspector Richard Guy, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We believe those involved in this isolated incident are known to each other and the assault happened following a fall-out between them.

“Knife crime and violence are treated seriously by Nottinghamshire Police and we will always act swiftly and robustly to reports.

“Our priority is to keep people safe and reduce any risk as soon as possible, and this was a great example of that commitment as officers were quickly on scene and made arrests soon after.

“We have also increased patrols in the area, to provide reassurance to the public, as we continue with our enquiries into what happened.

“The consequences of carrying a knife can be devastating which is why the force continues to work hard every day to tackle the issue and target people who carry weapons on our streets as well as focusing on proactive work with partners to prevent weapon-enabled crime and violence from happening in the first place.

“We remain determined to drive down knife crime in our communities and the public’s continued support is key to helping us to achieve our goal.

“While we have made two arrests I would still like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have CCTV, dash-cam or mobile phone footage which could assist us with our ongoing investigation.”

Anyone with any information is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 36 of 25 March 2022, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
