TWO further people have been arrested as police continue to investigate a serious assault in Tongham last Friday night (October 15).

The victim remains in a serious condition in hospital after being admitted around 9.35pm with stab wounds, a police spokesman confirmed on Monday afternoon.

The assault is believed to have taken place in an alleyway near the Cricketers public house in Tongham and officers are continuing to search the area.

A 34-year-old man from Ash Vale and a 50-year-old woman from Guildford were arrested on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm with intent in connection with the incident and have been released on conditional bail.

Police have also arrested a 37-year-old man from Guildford and a 33-year-old woman from Guildford in connection with the incident and they remain in custody.

Detective Inspector Jo Horner, who is leading the investigation, said: “A number of enquiries remain ongoing and there is still a visible police presence in the Tongham area.

"We would like to reassure the local community that we are doing everything we can to secure evidence and ensure that the offenders are brought to justice.

"We would also like to stress that we believe the offenders and victim were known to each other, and that this was not an isolated incident.

“We are still appealing for witnesses, particularly anyone who may have been driving past at the time and has any dashcam footage of the incident, to come forward as soon as possible, as this could be extremely helpful to our investigation.”
