The victim of the attack suffered a stab wound to the neck but has since been discharged from hospital.

Detective Sergeant Mark Shaw, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This is a very serious assault and I am pleased we were able to make another arrest in connection with the incident. However this is still an ongoing investigation and we are still working to piece together all the evidence in this case.

“For this reason we’re keen to speak to anyone who hasn’t yet come forward and who might have information which could help us with our investigation, including any dashcam footage.”

Officers are particularly keen to trace this black Renault Megane spotted in the area at the time of the attack. The vehicle, registration MK56 LWW, is distinctive because of the temporary run flat rear tyre on its rear offside.

If you have any information about this car or this incident call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 624 of 14 June 2020, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
