Detective Inspector Mark Booth, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “As these arrests highlight, the force takes all reports of violence and knife crime extremely seriously and we will always take swift action to investigate and track down suspects.

“We’ve now made three arrests in connection with this self-contained incident which involved people known to each other.

“There was no wider threat to the public and we’re not currently looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

“The consequences of carrying a knife can be devastating which is why Nottinghamshire Police continues to work hard every day, working alongside its partners, to tackle the issue and target people who carry weapons on our streets as well as focusing on proactive preventative and educational work to prevent weapon-enabled crime and violence from happening in the first place.

“Our priority is to keep people safe and we remain determined to drive down knife crime in our communities.

“While we have made three arrests we would still like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have CCTV, dash-cam or mobile phone footage which could assist us with our ongoing investigation.”
