The victim remains in a critical condition in hospital. 

Police were called to a disorder at an address in Aylesbury Street at around 7pm on Sunday 23 December

A man in his 30s had suffered multiple injuries, believed to have been caused by a knife, and is currently in hospital in a critical condition.

Police have been carrying out detailed enquiries and two people were originally arrested.

No further action will be taken against the 33-year-old woman from Swindon arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender in connection with the incident in Aylesbury Street.  

However, she remains in custody for an unrelated matter.

"We know this will understandably cause concern amongst the local community and people should expect to see an increased police presence in the area while we continue with our investigation.
