Police Sergeant Catherine Edwards, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Everyone deserves to feel safe in their own home.

We believe the two people involved in this incident were known to each other but of course that does not excuse this type of behaviour.

“Violence of any kind is completely unacceptable and something that Nottinghamshire Police will not tolerate.”
