Police are appealing for witnesses and information after reports that a teenager was stabbed in St Ann's.

The incident happened near to the Aldi store, in the Huntingdon Street area, at around 5.20pm today (Friday 15 November 2019).

The victim, a 14-year-old boy, was stabbed in the back and he suffered a broken nose after being punched in the face.

He was taken to the Queen's Medical Centre but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening or life-altering.

Detective Inspector Yvonne Dales, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "Our enquiries into the circumstances of this attack are ongoing but we are treating it as an isolated incident. We believe this was a targeted and not a random attack.

"We're treating this incident very seriously and doing everything we can to find those responsible.

"Officers are working hard to establish what happened but we'd like to hear from anyone with any information that could help our investigation.

"We'd like to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything and we'd also like to hear from any drivers who may have recorded dashcam footage of the incident.

"As you might expect there will be a heightened police presence in the area, providing reassurance as we continue with our enquiries which include checking any CCTV opportunities.

"I'd invite residents to speak to our officers if they have any concerns and I’d urge anyone with any information about this incident to contact us.

"If you have any information please call us on 101, quoting incident number 711 of 15 November 2019, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
