A man has been charged in connection with a number of assaults, including two stabbings, in Norwich.

Officers were called at 10.35pm on October 17 to reports an 18-year-old man had been assaulted on Magdalen Road and suffered a cut to the face.

Kurt Nelson, aged 20 and of Hassett Close in Norwich, has since been charged with grievous bodily harm with intent.

Nelson has also been charged with two further counts of grievous bodily harm with intent in relation to two incidents in the city.

The first relates to a stabbing on September 25 when a 15-year-old boy suffered a knife wound to the chest at the Ketts Cave area on Balfour Street. He suffered serious injuries and has since been released from hospital.

The second was at Heathgate on October 12. A man in his 30s was assaulted and stabbed with a sharp implement. He was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Nelson has been remanded into custody and is due to appear before Norwich Magistrates Court today.
