Mansfield Robbery Suspect Arrested

A suspect wanted in connection with a violent attempted robbery of a van driver has been arrested.

The victim had pulled up in Littleover Avenue, Mansfield, at around 6.15pm on Friday 8 October when his path was blocked by a car. 

He was then threatened with a crowbar and a knife before receiving a minor cut to his hand as he defended himself. 

The would-be robber made off empty-handed in an awaiting car. 

A 44-year-old man was arrested yesterday (Wednesday) when a taxi he was travelling in was pulled over in the Bestwood area of Nottingham. 

He has been detained on suspicion of two counts of robbery and possession of a Class A drug and remains in police custody. 

Detective Sergeant Jon Kerry, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a frightening incident for the victim and we have been working hard to track down the person or people responsible. I am pleased we now have a suspect in custody and our investigation continues.” 

Anyone with additional information about this incident is asked to call 101 quoting incident 722 of 8 October 2021.
