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.

The woman, in her 40s, has been taken to hospital with serious injuries where she remains. A house is sealed off by a police cordon and a man has been arrested.

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.”
