A 16-year-old boy suffered minor injuries after a man confronted a family in Mansfield following a dispute.

Police were called and quickly tracked down a 30-year-old man at his home a short time later and seized a hammer and screwdriver.

He was arrested on suspicion of common assault and possession of offensive weapons.

PC David Nicholson said: “This was obviously a distressing incident for the victim and his family and is still under an ongoing investigation.

“We await the results of further investigation into what could have been a much more serious incident.”
