A 15-year-old boy has been charged with possession of a bladed article and criminal damage.
He was arrested yesterday in connection with a sighting on CCTV of a boy running through Trinity Square with a knife at 5.50pm on Tuesday 29 August.
A knife was also recovered during a search warrant at a home address today in connection with the investigation.
The 15-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is due to appear at Nottingham Youth Court today (Thursday 20 September).
The charge comes as Nottinghamshire Police and partners are supporting a national knife amnesty, as part of Operation Sceptre. We are encouraging members of the public to dispose of unwanted knives at one of 13 amnesty bin locations across the county, with no questions asked, until Sunday (23 September).
