Two men have been arrested following a “tussle with a knife” at a house party in West Bridgford.

Police said officers were called to a property in Oak Tree Close at 8am on Saturday, January 29, after the gathering turned violent.

One person allegedly suffered a laceration to his finger, while another victim was punched in the face.

The two men, aged 32 and 38, were arrested on suspicion of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

They have since been bailed pending further enquires.

Nottinghamshire Police’s Chief Inspector Jon Foy said: “Officers did a great job getting to the scene so quickly and arresting two suspects.

“We believe that those involved are in some way known to each other and that there was no wider risk to the community.

“As a police force, we are committed to reducing knife crime, with two dedicated knife crime teams working hard every day to keep people safe by tackling this issue.

“I would urge anyone who is concerned about someone they believe to carry a knife to contact the police so we can act quickly to take weapons off the streets – and the people who use them to cause harm – in our neighbourhoods.

“Investigations into this latest incident are ongoing so I would ask anyone with additional information about what happened to call us on 101 quoting incident 195 of 29 January.”
