A man was taken to hospital with serious injuries after being attacked in the street.

Police were called to a disturbance in Northgate, New Basford, shortly after 9pm on Monday (10 January).

They found a 63-year-old man with serious facial injuries having allegedly been hit with a pole by another man.

He was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre and treated for injuries that are not thought to be life-threatening.

Enquiries led to the arrest of a 46-year-old man on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm shortly after the incident.

Detective Sergeant Andy Buxton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was an appalling assault and we are treating the incident extremely seriously.

“Officers have since made an arrest in connection with the incident, which involved people known to each other. 

“Our enquiries into this incident continue and we would encourage anyone with information to report this to police as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information that could help the investigation is asked to call 101 quoting incident 646 of 10 January 2022.”
