The suspect, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent and possession of a knife in a public place.

He appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Saturday (20 May) and was remanded into secure youth accommodation.

Detective Sergeant Sarah Gregg, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a very serious assault and I hope our response in locating, arresting and charging this suspect provides reassurance to the community.
