Police have charged a suspect after a man was stabbed in the back on a Nottinghamshire forecourt.

Officers were called to Rosemary Street Service Station, Mansfield, after receiving reports of an assault.

The victim, a man in his thirties, suffered a single stab wound to their back at around 9.40pm on Sunday (13 August).

Following the attack, the victim was taken to hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-altering.

William Tynch, 20, was subsequently charged with wounding with intent and possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

The suspect, of Rosemary Street, Mansfield, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on 15 August.

A 29-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and obstructing an officer in the execution of their duty has been released on conditional bail as inquires continue.

Detective sergeant Georgie Gallagher, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are confident this was a self-contained incident and as such poses no risk to the wider public, but our officers will still be carrying out visible patrols in the community over the coming days to provide some further reassurance.

“Nottinghamshire Police will always treat reports of weapon-enabled crime and wider violent behaviour extremely seriously and anyone involved in this type of offending should expect to receive a robust response from us.”
