Detectives charge teenager after supermarket stabbing

Detectives investigating a stabbing at a supermarket have charged a suspect.

The 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Nottingham Youth Court yesterday (Wednesday 5 October 2022) charged with wounding with intent and possession of a bladed article.

Officers were called to the Asda store, in Priestsic Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield, after reports of a serious assault at around 8.10pm on Monday 3 October 2022.

The 18-year-old victim suffered stab wounds to his chest which are not life-altering.

Detective Inspector Andy Hall, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Detectives have been working hard on the case and this charge is a significant step in the investigation.

"As in any case of serious violence officers were quick to respond and acted swiftly to investigate.

“Knife offences can have a devastating impact which is why we continue to work relentlessly all year round to tackle knife crime, reduce violence and take positive action to keep people safe.

“While I am pleased we have now charged a suspect, this remains an ongoing investigation, and I would urge anyone with information to call 101, quoting incident number 764 of 3 October 2022, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
