Police have charged a second man in connection with an alleged stabbing after an incident on Belper Road, Radford on 10 June.

It was reported the 19-year-old victim was robbed before he was attacked with a knife which left them needing emergency surgery.

Enquiries were quickly carried out and two men aged 19 and 21, were arrested nearby in connection with it.

Friras Al Jalam, 19, of Byfield Close, Radford, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Friday 18 June and was charged with wounding with intent, robbery and possession of a knife in a public place.

Adrian Pollack, 20, of Alfreton Road, Radford, previously appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday 14 June 2021 charged with the same offences.

They have both been remanded in custody and are next due to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 12 July 2021.

Detective Sergeant Nigel Malik, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The force and its partners work incredibly hard all-year-round to tackle and reduce knife crime and weapon-enabled violence in our communities.

“Carrying knives ruins lives and just one knife crime can have devastating impacts on so many people.

“That’s why Nottinghamshire Police continues to work tirelessly day-in day-out to tackle the issue, raise awareness of the dangers and prevent people from becoming involved in knife crime in the first place.

“I want to reassure the public that we are continuing to do everything we can as a force to drive down knife crime even further in Nottinghamshire and make it clear that carrying knives will not be tolerated.”
