Man Charged Following Kirkby Petrol Bomb Incident

A man has been charged after people were threatened with a petrol bomb and a knife.

The remains of a smashed petrol bomb were seized by police following reports of aggressive behaviour. 

It is alleged that a man was seen shouting at people and holding an unlit Molotov cocktail as well as a knife. 

The incident took place in Urban Road, Kirkby in Ashfield, on Saturday (12 March 2022). 

Andrew Freeman, 60, of Urban Road, Kirkby in Ashfield, was charged with possession of a bladed article and possession of a weapon. 

He has been remanded in custody to appear at Nottingham Crown Court on 22 March 2022. 

Detective Sergeant Andrea Brown, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “There is absolutely no excuse for anyone to ever carry or be in possession of a petrol bomb. 

“For obvious reasons, items of this nature can pose a substantial risk to anyone they come into contact with. 

“Our officers have now seized this item and a man has been charged in connection with this incident. 

"The investigation remains ongoing.”
