Leamington Editorial 28th Mar, 2023   0

A 42-YEAR-old woman has been charged with wounding with intent following a stabbing in Warwick.

A man was found with stab wounds by a passer by near the junction with Arden Close and Spinney Hill around 5pm on Saturday (March 25).

The member of the public took him to hospital and he is now being treated for stab wounds to the stomach. He is described as in a serious but stable condition.

Police arrested a 42-year-old woman on Monday (March 27) on suspicion of wounding.




Reda Malone, of Bennetts Castle Lane, Dagenham has since been charged with wounding with intent and appeared at Coventry Magistrates Court on Tuesday (March 28).

Police launched an appeal for information.


Det Sgt Alan Hands from Warwickshire Police CID said: “We believe the stabbing has occurred elsewhere, possibly in a property, before the victim has arrived at this location and been discovered. We’re working to establish where the attack took place and are appealing to the public for help, especially if they saw the man.

“It was quite a busy time of the day so we’re confident people will have seen the victim not realising he was badly injured. He is of large build and was wearing a dark hoody and dark tracksuit bottoms. He was carrying an orange towel to help stem the flow of blood.

“We’re asking people in the area to check dash cam and door bell footage to see if they can identifying anything that may help our investigation.”
