A 20-year-old man has been charged after a man was injured in a stabbing on Saturday, police have said.

A 29-year-old was treated for non life-threatening injuries after the attack in Allen's Walk, Arnold.

It was one of four knife-related incidents in the Nottingham area over the weekend, none of which were linked, police said.

The man, from Mansfield, is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates' Court later.

He has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent and threatening a person with an offensive weapon in a public place, according to Nottinghamshire Police.

The force said patrols have been increased in the Gedling area where three of the four stabbings took place.
