A man has been charged with the attempted murder of a woman who suffered a neck injury in Gants Hill.

Police investigating the incident, which took place around 9.30pm on Thursday, November 4, are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

They say the 20-year-old woman was close to the junction of Clarence Avenue and The Crescent when she was allegedly "seriously assaulted".


Police arrested a 24-year-old man the following day. He was later charged and remains in custody.

Detective Constable Chloe James, of the East Area Command, said: “I know that there were a number of good Samaritans who came to the victim’s aid on the night of this incident and I am very keen to hear from those people.

“No matter how insignificant you think your information might be please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
