Original Story: Police have been making door to door enquiries after an incident, described as ‘shocking’ by a resident, occurred in Burton by Rossett last night.

Residents have been in touch to tell us that police attended the incident near Croeshowell Lane in the village of Burton.

North Wales Police this morning have said “Police attended an address in Rossett shortly after 7pm last night following a report of a disturbance at a residential address.

“As a result of the disturbance, a 79-year-old male was taken to hospital where he was treated for minor injuries. A Police investigation is ongoing which is being managed by Wrexham CID.”

There has been no further information released.

One person has told us how an area in front of a bungalow had been cordoned off while what appeared to be police forensic teams worked.

It is thought both the police and ambulance service attended the incident.

A statement from the police with more information on the incident is expected this morning.
