Police appeal after report of men wearing bandanas carrying out assault in Mapperley


Police have launched an appeal after it was reported a male had been assaulted by men wearing bandanas in Mapperley.

Officers were called to Woodborough Road at around 1am on Thursday, July 30, after a man and a woman were reported to have been approached by two men wearing bandanas over their faces.

It was reported that one of the men punched a man in the face before fleeing the scene.

Detective Constable Natasha Ullyatt, of Nottinghamshire Police’s dedicated robbery team, said: “This incident was undoubtedly very scary for the victim and we are now working to establish the circumstances of the assault.

“I am appealing for anyone who may have seen something suspicious, have dashcam footage or CCTV in the area to get in touch with us as soon as possible.

“It is thought that this incident may be linked to another incident that occurred in Robin Hood Chase around 10 minutes before this assault.

“Violent crime has no place on our streets and Nottinghamshire Police will investigate all reports of violent crime.”

If you saw anything or have any information that could aid detectives in their investigation, please contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 39 of 30 July 2020.
