A 19-year-old man is still in a critical condition in hospital after being stabbed during a fight outside a nightclub in Nottingham city centre.
Five other men who were injured and admitted to hospital following the fight at around 3.45am on Monday, May 6, have since been discharged and arrested by police.
Detectives are urging members of the public to contact them with evidence following the incident outside Pryzm, in Lower Parliament Street.
Police have arrested six men in total in connection with the fight outside the nightclub which also led to six people getting injured by a ‘knife’.
Detective Inspector Daniel Johnstone, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The circumstances of the incident are still being investigated but it is believed the altercation started outside as people were leaving the nightclub.”
Following this, the police have been granted more time to question an 18-year-old man in connection with the incident.
The other four men arrested, two aged 24, one aged 19 and one aged 22, have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
“There were a lot of people in the area at the time and I would appeal for anyone who was there and saw something that could be helpful to the enquiry to come forward,” DI Johnstone added.
“If you took mobile phone footage or were driving past and caught some footage on your dash-cam, please let us know. It could be vital evidence.
“We treat all knife crime seriously and this incident has resulted in a 19-year-old man being in a critical condition so it is vital that we hear from as many witnesses as possible.”
The police cordon which covered a large area yesterday has now been removed.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident 119 of May 6, 2019 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
