Police say they have stepped up patrols after reports of men being verbally abusive at a park in Mapperley.

Officers increased high-visibility patrols to provide reassurance as they continue their enquiries into separate reports of men being verbally abusive.

Patrols have been stepped up in the Digby Avenue/Digby Park area after a woman reported two men had shouted abuse at her and intimidated her before one of them shoved her during an incident on a footpath in Central Avenue.

It happened around 1.50pm on Tuesday (October 5, 2021).

The victim was unharmed but left feeling shaken.
