Appeal for witnesses to alleged attempted murder in Haringey

Witnesses are sought following an alleged attempted murder for which a man has been charged in Haringey.

At 22:05hrs on Wednesday, 18 May, police were called to the Lordship Lane Recreation Ground off Higham Road, N17 following reports of an assault.

Officers attended and found a 43-year-old woman with what appeared to be a slash wounds to her neck.

She was treated by London Ambulance Service and London Air Ambulance medics before being taken to an east London hospital where her condition was assessed as not life threatening.

A 59-year-old man known to the woman has been arrested and charged with attempted murder. However, police continue to ask anyone who saw the incident to come forward. Enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing.

Detective Constable Simon Davis, investigating, said: "We know the victim and suspect were with a group of other people when this horrific incident unfolded.

"We need those people to come forward and help us build our understanding of what took place. Please do the right thing and contact us immediately."

Anyone who saw or heard anything unusual or suspicious in the area around the time of the incident is urged to call 101, giving the reference 8253/18MAY.
