We have launched an investigation into a serious assault in Cherry Willingham, which has left a woman in her 80s in a critical condition in hospital.
We received a report at 12.50pm on 3 July that a woman had suffered multiple injuries at an address in Elm Avenue.
She was treated at the scene and taken to hospital for further medical assistance, where she remains.
An 84-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and has been released on bail while our enquiries continue.
Officers and forensic investigators remain on scene while we work to establish the circumstances, and we will likely be in the area over the next few days.
We know that there is a lot of interest and concern from the local community, and we would like to reassure residents that this is an isolated incident and those involved knew each other.
We would ask that you do not speculate about the incident online so that we can complete our investigations.
If you have any information about the incident please contact DS Jim Wilson on [email protected]. Please quote incident 181 of 3 July.
