Police cordoned off an area of Radford Road after a fight broke out

A fight in Hyson Green, where a man was reportedly stabbed, is the latest in a rising number of knife crime incidents across Nottingham.

Police cordoned off an area between Radford Road and Gregory Boulevard shortly before 3pm on Monday after a fracas involving two groups of men.

One man is believed to have been injured by a knife in the incident. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

Officers say two people have been arrested following the fight and are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.

Anna Grodecka, 21, was working at Zabka Mini Market on Radford Road at the time of the incident.

She said: “We were still open and it was like a normal day really. Quite a lot of fighting happens on this road.”

Anna said despite the latest incident in the area she still felt safe working in the shop during the day, but not at night.

Fellow trader Ziaur Choudhury, 60, who has worked on Gregory Boulevard for three years, also said he still feels safe in the area.

He said: “The only trouble I sometimes get is from European teenagers who try to distract me and then steal things.”

The fight follows another incident in Hyson Green on December 28 when four men were arrested after their vehicle was stopped by police. Several knives were recovered from the vehicle.

And in the early hours of Friday, January 12, a man was tasered by police after a reported robbery at knife-point on Talbot Street.

The past month has seen police make numerous arrests for knife-related crime in and around the city centre.
