Man in custody after woman wounded in assault

A marked police car and the words

Detectives investigating a serious assault in Horfield this afternoon (Tuesday 28 February) are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

We were called to Filton Avenue at 4.15pm after a woman sustained a number of stab wounds in an assault outside of a pub.

She was taken to hospital by paramedics where she remains. Her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing.

A 36-year-old man has been arrested and is currently in custody.

We believe this is an isolated incident and they are known to each other.

Anyone who witnessed what happened, or may have dashcam footage of the area from this afternoon, and has yet to speak with police is asked to call us on 101 and quote reference number 5223048570.

No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court or have to speak to police when contacting Crimestoppers.
