A 45-YEAR-OLD man from London has been arrested following a disturbance at Westbury Pocket Park yesterday (Monday).

Officers were called to the scene at 6.54pm and found an injured 33-year-old man. He was taken to hospital and has since been discharged.

His attacker was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and remains in police custody.

Inspector Fergus Green from the Worcester Safer Neighbourhood team said: “Luckily, in this instance, the injured man has been treated at hospital for stab wounds and has been treated for non-fatal injuries.

“We believe this to be isolated and we would invite anyone with concerns to speak with members of our Safer Neighbourhood and local policing patrols who will have an increased presence within the area over the coming days.”
