Police investigate stabbing in Norwich

Police are investigating a stabbing in Norwich this morning (Thursday 8 November 2018).

Officers were called at 11.24am to reports that two women, aged in their 60s and 70s, had sustained knife injuries outside and address on Riverside Road.

Both women have been taken to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital with serious injuries, however they are not thought to be life threatening.

Following further enquiries officers arrested a man, aged in his 60s at an address in Randell Close, North Walsham, at 12.25pm, in connection with the incident. He has been detained and will be questioned by police later.

Detective Inspector Chris Burgess said: “This investigation is in its early stages; however, it is believed the suspect and the victims are known to each other and there is no wider threat to the public.”

A police cordon has been put in place at both addresses whilst officers carry out their enquiries.
