Teenagers charged with stabbing and robbery

Two teenagers have been charged with a stabbing and a robbery that took place less than a week apart on the same street.

An 18-year-old man had to be taken to hospital for treatment after being stabbed, in Ramsdale Road, Carlton, on Saturday (19 March 2022).

His injuries were not life-threatening.

Police were also called to the same location a week earlier on Sunday 13 March, after another 18-year-old man was reportedly robbed at knife point and forced to hand over his mobile phone.

Ziyad Meliebar18, and a 17-year-old girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were both arrested following the stabbing incident and were further arrested in connection with the robbery six days earlier.

Meliebary, of Colville Street, Arboretum, has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent, robbery, possession of an offensives weapon and possession of a class B drug.

The 17-year-old girl has also been charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent, robbery and possession of an offensive weapon.

Meliebary is due to appear before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court later today (21 March 2022), while the 17-year-old girl has been released on bail with conditions and will appear before the courts on 28 April 2022.

Detective Sergeant Lauren Morgan, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Stopping knife crime is one of our main priorities across the force, for the simple reason that it can lead to lives being changed forever, and in some case, lead to lives being tragically cut short too.

“A young man was stabbed during this assault but thankfully, his injuries aren’t life-threatening.

“We feel that this assault may be linked to a separate robbery that took place in the same location six days earlier and have now charged two suspects in connection with both incidents.”
