A 20-year-old man from Broxtowe has been convicted of carrying an offensive weapon.

On 19 August 2019 Jae Wynter-Merrin of Withern Road, Broxtowe, was convicted at Nottingham Magistrates Court after being found by officers carrying a kitchen knife in public. 

Officers were quickly on the scene following reports of a man threatening people on 22 April 2019 and saw the knife being discarded.

Wynter-Merrin was swiftly detained and the knife was recovered.

The court ordered the knife to be destroyed, a total of £350 to be paid in costs and fines and 26 weeks of custody suspended for 18 months. In addition, he must complete 25-hours of rehabilitation.
