A man has been charged with attempted murder following an incident in Hemel Hempstead.

Gavin Hedges, aged 54, from Pescot Hill was charged on Saturday, January 2 and remanded into custody to appear before Hatfield Remand Court today, January 4.

Police were called just after midnight on Saturday to report a disturbance outside an address in Wootton Drive.

Officers attended and a man was found to have sustained cuts and lacerations to various parts of his body.

His injuries are not being treated as life-threatening; a vehicle was quickly stopped nearby and an arrest was made.

Detective Constable David Herring, from the Dacorum Local Crime Unit, said: “I understand this may cause concern among the local community but I would like to reassure people that this is being treated as an isolated incident, between parties known to each other.

“While a charge has been brought, our enquiries are continuing at this time and I would ask anyone with information, who hasn’t yet spoken to police, to please contact us.”
