This took the number of arrests in this case up to three, with police previously arresting two men, aged 42 and 20, on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent, just hours after the attack on April 15.

Both suspects were released on conditional bail.

Detective Sergeant Georgina Gallagher, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “It is extremely important that everyone knows that this type of behaviour is completely unacceptable and that we will always do everything in our power as a force to keep this type of violence off our streets.

“Our enquiries are ongoing into this incident, so we’d ask that anyone who has any information that could assist us with our investigation comes forward as soon as possible.”
