Officers on patrol in Mansfield arrested a man last night (31 October) on suspicion of seven offences, including sexual assault.

At around 10.45pm officers stopped a car due to concerns over the manner in which it was being driven. The officers believed the driver to be un-insured and the car was seized. Following a search of the car officers also found what they suspect to be Class A drugs.

At the police station he was tested using one of the new road traffic drug test sticks; it came back positive for both cannabis and cocaine. 

A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of careless driving, driving without insurance and possession of drugs and two counts of driving under the influence of drugs.

He was further arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and threats to kill after officers were informed that he was also wanted in connection with a previous incident.

He remains in police custody.
