Detectives investigating a large fight in the street have charged two teenagers with violent disorder.
Officers were called to Foxhall Road, Forest Fields, Nottingham, at 7.25 pm on Tuesday (16 May) after reports a group of young men were fighting with knives.
When police arrived at the scene the offenders fled in different directions.
An 18-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy are expected to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today (18 May) charged with violent disorder.
The 18-year-old has also been charged with possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.
The 15-year-old has been charged with possession of a bladed article in relation to an earlier incident, in Noel Street, on 11 May when officers stopped a suspect acting suspiciously and found a knife in his clothing.
Three people were treated at Queen’s Medical Centre for injuries which are not currently believed to be life-altering or life-threatening following the Forest Fields incident.
Detective Inspector Chris Berryman, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We understand this incident may have caused concerns within the community.
“I hope people are reassured by our response which has included an increased presence of uniformed officers.
“I’m also pleased these two suspects have been charged and placed before the courts.
“Our investigation remains ongoing and I would like to appeal directly to anyone else involved in this incident, or who has information about what happened, to contact police immediately.”
Anyone with any information, or CCTV, door bell or dash-cam footage, should call officers on 101, quoting incident 707 of 16 May, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
