Shocked neighbours have spoken about an alleged road rage incident which led to police finding two machetes.
Police were called to Mildenhall Crescent, Bestwood, at around 4.30pm on Sunday September 26.
Officers were called to reports of a disturbance following an argument after one car allegedly pulled out in front of another.
They say when they arrived at the scene, they stopped a vehicle that was leaving the scene and arrested a 38-year-old man on suspicion of affray and has since been bailed with conditions.
A search of the suspect’s home later on led to the recovery of two machetes and an air rifle.
People who live in Mildenhall Crescent spoke of their shock after the incident on the “normally quiet” residential street.
One woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “I heard a lot of shouting and then I saw the police arrive.
“It’s always shocking when these things happen outside your door. There are lots of families around here so it’s really not what you want to be seeing.
“It’s normally very quiet around here.”
Meanwhile Michael Mopp, who lives on the street, said: “I heard the police, you could hear the sirens outside – I didn’t know what had happened though.
“This is a nice area to live, definitely. That sort of thing doesn’t usually happen.”
Sharon Swan, 77, who is retired, told Nottinghamshire Live: “I was out when it happened.
“It’s very rare something like that happens here. You don’t really get much bother around here – I’ve lived here since 1965.”
Constable Octavia Watson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was an alarming incident for the victim and generated a quick response from officers.
“Nottinghamshire Police will not tolerate the possession of dangerous weapons in public and will always work hard to track down and arrest anyone involved in knife incidents.
“Our investigation into this incident is continuing and we would like to speak to any remaining witnesses who may have seen the incident unfold and have any information.”
Anyone with additional information is asked to call 101 quoting incident 532 of 26 September 2021.
