Woman arrested after man beaten in the street in unprovoked attack

A woman has been arrested after a man suffered significant facial injuries after being attacked in the street.

The victim was on his way to a shop along Courtenay Gardens, St Ann’s, when he was subjected to what appeared to be an unprovoked attack at around 9.20pm on Wednesday.

He has been left with a black eye and scratches to his face after being hit with a bottle and kicked whilst he lay on the ground.

A passer-by came to the man’s aid and contacted Nottinghamshire Police. A woman was taken into custody on suspicion of robbery and assault a short time later.

Neighbourhood Inspector Karl Thomas said: “This was a despicable act of violence where a man, who was innocently walking to the shop, has been randomly set upon.

“We’re grateful to residents who intervened and provided us with information and that a woman was quickly arrested in relation to this crime.
