TWO people have been arrested after a stabbing at a house in Porton this morning (Tuesday).

As reported earlier, police were called to an address in Southbourne Way shortly after 10am today after reports of a “disorder” at the property.

Officers confirmed a man in his 40s had been injured, requiring the air ambulance to attend the scene.

They have now revealed that the man suffered “a number of stab wounds” before a land ambulance drove him to Southampton General Hospital, where his condition is described as stable.

Police arrested one man and have since confirmed that a woman was also been taken into custody.

A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and was briefly taken to Salisbury District Hospital for assessment before being transported to custody at Melksham Police Station.

A 21-year-old woman was also arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and is currently in custody at Melksham Police Station.

It comes after a murder investigation was launched in Salisbury yesterday following an incident in which a woman was found dead at a Wessex Road property.

Detective Inspector Chris Feerick said: “I know this incident will cause great concern amongst the local community, particularly given the ongoing murder investigation in relation to a separate matter in Salisbury yesterday.

“Please be reassured that this is an isolated incident and, although our enquiries are still at an early stage, we believe all those involved were known to each other.

“There will be police in the area throughout the day as our investigation continues, so please do not be alarmed by this.

“Officers will be continuing to obtain witness statements throughout the coming days – if you saw or heard anything suspicious in the area or have any information which could be relevant to our investigation, and have not yet spoken to police, please do get in touch.”

Anyone wishing to do so is advised to call 101 and quote log number 98 of June 2.
