Incident in Baslow

Following the incident in Baslow on 15 February, the Police issued the following statement:

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following a stabbing in Baslow.

We were called to a house in Wheatlands Lane just after 2pm to reports that a woman had been stabbed.

The woman, who is in her 50s, was taken to hospital where she is being treated for injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening.

Just before 5.20pm, officers from Cheshire Police stopped a vehicle just outside Northwich and arrested a man, also in his 50s, on suspicion of attempted murder.
