Police have made another arrest in connection with a stabbing following an illegal gathering over the weekend.

A 40-year-old man was arrested yesterday at an address in Retford yesterday on suspicion of attempted murder and grievous bodily harm with intent.

He remains in custody.

It is the latest arrest after an illegal gathering broke out at a property in Bramble Close, Old Basford, at around 10pm on Saturday (12 June 2021).

During the disturbance an 18-year-old man was stabbed.

As police were tending to his injuries they were targeted with bottles by members of the crowd and police vehicles were damaged.

Detective Inspector Ruby Burrow, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are pleased to have secured a further arrest in connection with this serious incident and I hope it reassures members of the public that we are working tirelessly to gather further evidence, identify others involved and bring them to justice.”

The stabbing victim was taken to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre for urgent treatment. His injuries are not currently thought to be life-threatening.

DI Burrow added: “We are continuing to pursue a number of lines of enquiry as our investigation progresses and we are keen to speak to potential witnesses, who haven’t yet come forward, about what they saw.

“We know there were lots of people at this at this gathering who may have crucial information which could help us to better understand what happened.

“If you have any information please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 304 of 12 June 2021, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
