Teenager charged with making threats to kill after blade found at Nottingham address

A teenager has appeared in court after he was found in possession of a craft knife blade.

Officers were called to Broomhill Road, Bulwell, at around 8.50am on Monday after reports of a disturbance.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested shortly afterwards and found to be carrying the blade during a search.

The boy has since been charged with possessing a bladed article in a public place, making threats to kill, harassment, criminal damage and three counts of assault by beating.

He appeared at Nottingham Magistrates Court on Tuesday and was released on conditional bail.

Detective Constable Ella Redfern, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Possessing any kind of blade in a public place can be a criminal offence.

“Once such weapons are on the streets just a single moment of madness can have catastrophic consequences for victims, perpetrators and their families. That’s why we work hard throughout the year not only to take dangerous weapons off our streets, but also to dissuade people from carrying them in the first place.”
