Residents in The Meadows say they're angry and worried after another stabbing in the area.
A 33-year-old man was stabbed in Tarbert Close on Monday - the fifth in the area since the start of April - and while police say they've increased patrols, residents claim not to have seen evidence of that.
One man, who said he cradled the victim and stemmed the blood flow until emergency services arrived, said: "I'm worried for the kids, and my friends' kids. They're frightened now to come out. That's not an everyday thing they should see."
Insp James Walker said they had increased patrols in the area and Nottinghamshire Police is one of only two forces to have a dedicated knife crime team.
He said: "The Meadows is a large area. We can't be everywhere all of the time and we look to go to the areas where we feel our presence is necessary."
A 28-year-old man was arrested yesterday in connection with Monday's stabbing.
