Man, 46, arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after police officer was assaulted with chisel

| July 4, 2015


At around 12.42am on Saturday 4th July 2015 Thames Valley Police officers were called to a block of flats in Olympic Way, High Wycombe following reports of a disturbance involving two people.

A 46 year old man was removed from the building and taken to hospital for his own welfare.

The man was arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment and assault and remains in police custody. He was also arrested on suspicion of attempted murder because one of the police officers was assaulted with a chisel. The officer sustained minor injuries and did not require hospital treatment.

A 46 year old woman sustained minor injuries and was taken to hospital but has since been discharged.

Acting Det Insp Sally Spencer, the investigating officer in this case, said: ‘We would like to reassure the community that we are investigating this incident and officers remain in the area dealing with the investigation and also engaging with the public.

This was a difficult situation for our police officers, one of whom suffered minor injuries that did not require him to go to hospital for treatment.

As a result of the incident damage has been caused to some of the flats which has affected other residents in the block and we are working with the housing association to limit the impact upon them.

If anyone heard or saw anything in relation to this incident, I would like to speak to them and urge them to speak to a police officer at the scene or alternatively call the police non-emergency number 101 quoting URN 96 04/07/15. Alternatively people can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and pass information anonymously.
