A 22-year-old man has appeared in court charged with possession of an offensive weapon and possession of a bladed article.

It comes after officers were called to a report of a civil dispute in Honiton Road, Broxtowe Estate, at 12.15pm on Tuesday (15 October).

Officers witnessed a confrontation as a result of the dispute and intervened before stopping and searching a man and recovering a hammer and a kitchen knife.

Valdir Joao, of Deepdene Way, Broxtowe Estate, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates' Court yesterday (Wednesday 16 October) and was granted bail to appear at the same court on 28 January for trial.
