A man has been arrested on suspicion of affray after reports of a fight in Eastwood.

We were called Lydia Gardens at around 8.45pm on Friday (4 May 2018).

The 31-year-old was taken into custody this morning.

Supt Ian Roberts said: "We sincerely apologise to the victim of this offence for the delay in taking a statement from him.

"We are carrying out a number of enquiries including speaking to potential witnesses and locating CCTV.

"It is an isolated incident, however we will be carrying out reassurance patrols in the area.

"Knife crime is taken seriously and is a force priority. In this case we have not taken the appropriate action and we are now working with the victim to ensure he receives the service we would expect."

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
