Police have made four further arrests following a stabbing in Hucknall.

The victim, a 20-year-old man, was riding a bicycle when he was confronted by three men and stabbed near Farleys Lane, at around 1.45pm on Friday (24 July).

He was taken to hospital but his injuries are not life-threatening or life-altering.

Firearms officers were quickly on the scene and arrested a 26-year-old man on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm after abandoning a moped close by. He has since been released under unvestigation pending further enquiries.

Officers have now arrested four more men - aged 52, 23, 22 and 19 - in connection with the investigation.

Detective Sergeant Luke Todd, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "The investigation is moving at pace and we have now made five arrests.

"Violence, particularly involving weapons, will not be tolerated in Nottinghamshire and the swift and robust response to this incident shows just how seriously we treat this type of offence."

Anyone with information is urged to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 348 of 24 July 2020.

Six people have been arrested following a disturbance in Sherwood.

A group of people were reported to be fighting in the street with weapons including metal bars and a knife in Melrose Street, near the junction with Mansfield Road, at around 12.20am today (Saturday 25 July).

Three people are believed to have been injured in the incident - although none of their injuries are thought to be life-threatening or life-altering.

Detective Sergeant Ian Holmes, who is leading the investigation, said: "Officers responded quickly to reports of a disturbance in the early hours of this morning and were able to make five arrests.

"The circumstances of what happened are still being investigated but the enquiry is moving swiftly. At this stage we believe this to be a self-contained incident.

"We will be continuing house-to-house enquiries in the area today and people will see a very visible policing presence to investigate the incident and provide reassurance for local residents.

"This type of incident is completely unacceptable and we will investigate thoroughly to ensure this incident is dealt with robustly.

"I would ask anyone who saw the incident, or has video footage, to come forward as soon as possible to help the enquiry."

Three men, aged 41, 34 and 32 have been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent in connection with the incident.

Two men, aged 57 and 37, were also arrested on suspicion of affray. The 37-old was further arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs.

A 45-year-old woman has also been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
