Officers swiftly arrested a suspect after reports of a man with a machete inside a block of flats in Bramcote.

Police were called to the property in Peache Way at 10.45pm yesterday (Wednesday 7 April 2021) and arrested a 19-year-old man on suspicion of affray and possession of a bladed article in a public place. He remains in custody.

No injuries were reported during the incident.

Detective Constable Nathan Wall, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Officers arrived within minutes of the call and acted quickly to make an arrest in connection with this incident.

Nottinghamshire Police takes all reports of knife crime extremely seriously. We will not tolerate people carrying knives in Nottinghamshire and we will always look to take action against those who are found to commit such offences.

"We all need to work together to combat knife crime and we’re urging anyone with information on knife crime in their local community to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. In an emergency, always dial 999."
