Further arrest following stabbing in Swindon

By Barrie Hudson - 1 December 2023


A further arrest has been made in connection with a stabbing that took place in Swindon's Malmesbury Gardens on Thursday 23 November.

Officers detained an 18-year-old man from the Park South area this morning - 1 December - on suspicion of Section 18 GBH and robbery. He is currently in police custody.

This follows the earlier arrest of a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of Section 18 GBH, robbery and possession of a bladed article. The 17-year-old has been released on conditional bail.

Both were arrested in connection with a serious assault in which a man in his 20s suffered serious but not life-threatening knife injuries. He has since been discharged from hospital.

Anyone who saw what took place or who may have further information about this incident is asked to call the police on 101, quoting reference 54230124454.
