Nottinghamshire Police have issued a statement after a major cordon was set up in Nottingham city centre. Officers were called to Crocus Street in The Meadows just after 6.05pm on Saturday, March 26.

The force has now confirmed a man in his 50s was stabbed close to the junction with Arkwright Walk and Meadows Way. The man has been taken to hospital but his condition is not believed to be life threatening.

A spokesperson for Nottinghamshire Police said: “A cordon has been put in place in the area as emergency services deal with the incident and officers carry out inquiries.” Chief Inspector Paul Hennessy, of Nottinghamshire Police, added: “Our investigation is at an early stage and we are working to understand what happened during this incident.

“It is early in the investigation but this is believed to be a self-contained incident with no wider threat to the public.” The incident has caused shock among neighbours.

Local resident Andrew, who wished to withhold his last name, said he was “shocked and surprised”. “I live locally so I know most people in the area. It’s a good set community so it’s a bit of a shock really,” he said.

“For someone to bring a knife out today, on such a beautiful day. The sad thing is it all falls down on our doorstep, it will be ‘there was a stabbing in the Meadows’.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident or the moments before or after it is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 558 of 26 March.
