Officers are trying to trace a man following an assault at a house in Chippenham Road, Bestwood Park.

A 26-year-old man was taken to hospital with a single stab wound which required stitches following the incident at 9.49pm yesterday (Tuesday 12 June). His injury is not life-threatening or life-altering.

A man forced entry into the house before the assault, which is believed to be domestic-related.

Detective Inspector Sam Austin said: "We are carrying out a number of enquiries to trace the suspect and would urge anyone with information to come forward. We do not believe there is a threat to the wider public as this appears to be a domestic-related assault."

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers anionymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident number 931 of 12 June 2018.

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.
