A suspect has appeared in court after a police officer was hurt during a struggle.

Officers were called to reports of a disturbance at a house in Jarvis Avenue, Carlton, at around 3.40pm on Friday 8 April.

Police entered a property in a bid to calm the situation but were then threatened by a man.

A struggle broke out and one officer was briefly knocked out after hitting his head hard against a wall.

Ishrat Khan, of Jarvis Avenue, Carlton, was arrested at the scene and later charged with making threats to kill, assaulting an emergency worker and common assault.

The 49-year-old appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday (April 11) and is next due to appear at the court on 1 June 2022  for a trial.

Inspector Karl Thomas, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Police officers dedicate their time to protecting and helping our communities and it is deeply troubling when an officer is hurt in the line of duty.

“Thankfully the officer is making a good recovery and the force is looking after his welfare.

“Nottinghamshire Police will not tolerate threatening or violent behaviour and anyone who commits such offences can expect to find themselves in court.”
