A man from Wrexham has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a serious incident in Wrexham town centre last night.

Police were called at 8.41pm last night (Thursday) after reports of an incident on High Street in which a man sustained a stab wound to the neck.

Armed officers were deployed to the area and the casualty was taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital with “non-life-threatening injuries”.

Armed police ‘forced entry’ to a property and arrested a person in an operation last night, working alongside police dog teams and the North Wales Police drone unit.

Police say a 26 year old man from Wrexham was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and is currently in custody.

In a statement this morning officers said, “We are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident, and we are working closely with colleagues in local partner agencies today to reassure the community. Uniformed patrols will continue to be visible over the weekend.”

“Our enquiries into this incident are ongoing, and anyone with information should contact us via our live webchat facility or on 101 quoting ref Z140805.”

Several police units along with two ambulances attended the incident on High St, with a cordon in place while investigations took place.
