After Friday’s incident in the St Jude’s Road area of Englefield Green, Surrey Police have announced that one man has been arrested in connection with the incident after another man was found with “potentially life-changing injuries” having been stabbed in the arm and shoulder after officers were called to reports of a house party that spilled out on to the street.
Aside from the fact that they had responded to a call, South East Coast Ambulance Service declined to give further details on either he incident or the injuries sustained by people at the scene as it was logged as a call to a private address.
Surrey Police said they would not be commenting on whether or not the victim was a student at the local university, Royal Holloway. They did, however, say officers had been in the area in the days after the assault. Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Dee Fielding said:
“This was a serious attack which has left a young man with potentially life-changing injuries. We need the community’s help to find out why this happened.
“We have been carrying out a number of enquiries since this happened on Friday night and have had a witness come forward. However, we still need further information from those who attended the party.
“I would urge those who went to think seriously about contacting us or the independent charity Crimestoppers who you can speak to anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 with any information.
“If you have video footage, perhaps from your home, or if you took any on your mobile, please let us know.”
Officers are especially keen to know more about the movements of a man who was present at the party described as:
- White Above 6ft tall and of slim build
- Aged in his late teens or early 20s
- Short dark hair
- Wearing a white t-shirt with a scarf around his neck
