Six arrested after alleged attempted murder in Guildford

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 5:28pm 18th July 2019. (Updated at 5:44am 19th July 2019)

Police have arrested six people in total following an alleged attempted murder in Guildford.

Officers were called to Guildford Park Avenue at 5.10am today (July 18) following reports of an altercation between a number of people, thought to have involved a knife.

The area was cordoned off and saw a large police presence as they started investigating exactly what happened.

Initially one man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, followed by two women, and a further two other men - all for the same alleged offence.

Another woman was then arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender in connection with the incident, bringing the total number detailed to six.

A man remains in hospital with serious injuries, although they are not thought to be life threatening.

Detectives are keen to hear from anyone who may have any information about what happened in Guildford Park Avenue to get in touch.

Investigating officer Detective Inspector Pete Howgate said:

"This has been and continues to be a fast moving investigation today resulting in a number of arrests.

"There was initially a substantial cordon put in place in response to what happened which was necessary to help us look for and secure evidence. These have now been scaled back and I'm grateful for the public's understanding given the impact it had during rush hour this morning.

"We will continue to have a police presence in the area throughout today and tomorrow to both investigate but also to speak to residents about what happened and offer reassurance.

"If anyone has any information about what happened please get in touch with us, or if you don't want to speak to a police officer you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
