Woman allegedly assaulted and held against her will after domestic disturbance

A suspect has been charged after police discovered a woman appearing to be being held against her will in the back of a car.

Officers were called to Killisick Road, Arnold, at around 7.15 pm on Monday (16 January), following reports of a domestic disturbance.

A woman was reportedly assaulted during the incident, before being driven away in a car.

Police spotted the vehicle parked on Park Road, Bestwood Colliery, a few minutes later, with a woman seen sitting in the back of the car.

The woman was then released from the car, with officers arresting driver Connor McKenna at the scene.

A man from Bulwell has since been charged with false imprisonment and engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour.

The 18-year-old was also charged with two counts of assault by beating, possession of a bladed article, driving without a licence, and driving with no insurance.

He was due to appear before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today (18 January).

Police Constable Matthew Mathers of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Thanks to the response of our officers, we were able to quickly locate a woman who had reportedly been the target of a domestic offence.

“Tackling violence and threatening behaviour against women and girls remain a key priority for us as a force, so we will always respond to any reports we receive of this nature.”
