Neighbour ‘heard shouting, then police arrived’ after alleged serious assault in ‘quiet’ Doncaster residential street
Shocked neighbours described hearing shouting in the early hours of the morning, after reports of a serious assault on a ‘quiet’ Doncaster estate.
Detectives and scene of crime officers were carrying out investigations today as officers were called in after reports that a woman had been assaulted at a house on Hazel Avenue, Auckley, today.
One neighbour said today: “We heard some shouting in the early hours of the morning, at about 2am. After that we heard car doors slamming and saw police cars and an ambulance arrive. When I realised there was the police cordon I feared someone was dead. I hope the woman makes a full recovery.
“I don’t know the people in that house – a lot of the houses round here are rented. It is quite shocking.”
Friends Olga Collins and Lisa Shelbourne saw the police presence while walking their dogs.
Mrs Collins said: “This is usually a really quiet part of Auckley – it is a shock to see the police here.”
Mrs Shelbourne said: “I think the lady who lives in that house has only been here a a few months. I think a lot of the houses are rented in that part of the street. It is very quiet here.”
