Police searching for a man who had been wanted in connection with a serious domestic assault in Mapperley have made an arrest as part of their investigation.
Nottinghamshire Police were called to a residential property in Pilkington Road, Mapperley at around 2pm on Wednesday 5 August following a report that a man and a woman had been seriously assaulted there.
Both victims were taken to hospital for treatment for serious injuries following the incident. The man has remained in a critical condition in hospital since the time of the incident, while the woman has since been discharged.
A large-scale police operation has been ongoing since the incident was first reported, which saw the police helicopter, foot patrols and drone support all called-upon as efforts continued to locate Joseph Chattaway.
A 25-year old man who was arrested in the Staffordshire area late on Friday afternoon (14 August) is now in police custody, where he is continuing to assist detectives with their investigation into the incident.
Detective Sergeant Adam Taylor from Nottinghamshire Police said: “This is a serious incident which has naturally been a cause of real concern for people living in the area.
“This arrest is a positive development in our ongoing investigation and I would like to reassure the public that we continue to have a dedicated team of detectives who will be working throughout the night as those enquiries continue.
“I would also like to thank our Staffordshire Police colleagues for their assistance in this investigation and I can confirm that we are not looking to speak to anyone else at this stage of our enquiries.”
Detectives are continuing to encourage anyone who witnessed the incident or believes they have any other information which could help their enquiries to contact police as soon as possible.
