Man arrested after woman seriously injured in incident


A man has been arrested following an incident at an Eastleigh home in which a woman was seriously injured

Shortly after 12am today (Monday, May 7) police were called to a flat in Alexander Square, after reports of a dispute which resulted in a 27-year-old woman sustaining serious injuries.

The 27-year-old and her 19-month-old daughter were inside the flat, and following a 999 call received by Hampshire Constabulary control room from the address, officers attended. Both the injured woman and her baby were taken to safety and a 45-year-old man was arrested.

All three were taken to hospital.  The mother and baby remain in hospital, the female victim is in a stable condition and the baby is being observed by medical staff.

The 45-year-old remains in police custody whilst enquiries continue.

Detectives and officers from Western area police and the Force Support Unit will today be conducting house-to-house inquiries in the area and a crime scene investigation will be carried out on the flat today.

Detective Inspector Charlie Rimmer, leading the investigation, said:

“We would like to reassure members of the local community that this is very much an isolated incident.  We had a large team of officers dedicated to this throughout the night and will continue today, with officers in the area today focussed on establishing exactly what happened.

“If you witnessed this incident and if you are yet to speak to police, please stop an officer if you see them and talk to them, or call us on 101, quoting Operation Belvedere.”

    Not Alexander Square.. AGAIN.!! How many times has this notorious housing development been in the headlines?? I do hope the woman makes a full recovery and is able to help the police with their enquirers. I also hope that she is moved from this awful area of Eastleigh which was the jewel of our local Fib Dem planning committee in 2008.

      This man clearly has no idea of what it’s liKe to live here. What exactly is the ‘Notoriety’ he describes at ALexander Square.. Is it Drug Dens. Flats of Ill Repute. Illegal Gambling. Just what is he moaning about!! The clamping issues by ‘Whites’ were dealt with!! Thats the “Only” problem there has been!!! We moved here from Hounslow, West London in 2009. We like living here.. It’s Nice and peaceful. Superb neighbourhood! Compared to what we used to endure!! I suggest he moves to The Chinchilla Drive/Beavers Lane Estat in Hounslow.. Where my previous flat backed onto, and then you’ll find real notoriety! I suggest Sir you take you take yourself and your anti leb dem proganda with you and move there!

    As awful as it is what happened last night, Alexander square isn’t all bad!! there are a lot of key workers such as doctors and teachers living on the development and quite a lot of it is actually privately owned including my flat which I’ve lived in quite happily since I bought it new nearly 4 years ago.
    Apart from the clamping issues that have made the headlines I havn’t known much else go on, to warrant comments like “Alexander square again!”

    Calm down guys.
    There is nothing to suggest this incident is related to ASB.
    We don’t know what the circumstances are but we do know someone is seriously hurt and this is an appeal by Police for information.
    We’ve had points made for and against Alexander Square so lets leave it that.
