Two in court after vans ram into each other in street disturbance

Two men have appeared in court after a reported dispute in a street involving weapons.

Officers arrived on scene within minutes after responding to reports of two vans ramming into each other and men allegedly in possession of weapons during a disturbance in Edinburgh Walk, Worksop, at around 4pm on 4 November 2022.

Following extensive inquiries, warrants were executed at two addresses on Friday (2 December 2022) by Nottinghamshire Police Tactical Support Group officers.

Weapons including a gas-powered pistol, knives and hammers were seized and two men were arrested in connection with the joint investigation involving the force’s Tactical Support Group and Intelligence department.

Ryan Wilson, aged 28, and Darryl Wilson, aged 32, both of Edinburgh Walk, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Saturday (3 December 2022).

Ryan Wilson is charged with two counts of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, one count of possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and one count of violent disorder.

Darryl Wilson is charged with two counts of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place and one count of violent disorder.

They were both released on conditional bail and are next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 6 January 2023.

Investigator Sarah Shaw, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We treat all reports of weapon-enabled crime and violence with the utmost seriousness. Violent behaviour of this nature will not be tolerated on our streets.

“We will investigate reports and take appropriate action against those suspected to have committed such offences as well as focusing on proactive work with our partners to prevent weapon-enabled crime and violence from happening in the first place.”

Detective Sergeant Andrea Brown added: “Preventing and reducing crime and keeping people in our communities safe are priorities for the force. Thanks to some good investigative work two men have now been charged and face court proceedings.”
