RESIDENTS remain in the dark with a police presence still in place after a man was attacked in a residential Basingstoke street last night (Saturday).

Police were called to Queen’s Road at 9.11pm last night after reports of an assault.

One man was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while a 33-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of GBH with intent.

A police presence remains at the scene, with part of Queen’s Road blocked.

Basingstoke Gazette:

However many residents say they are still none the wiser as to what happened. The Gazette has spoke to a number of neighbours with many having missed the incident altogether when it took place last night.

“I heard absolutely nothing,” said one person, “I had my headphones in so I missed it.”

Police were conducting door to door enquiries last night, but one lady noted: “I couldn’t help them at all, I was in the back room when it happened. It was quite late.”

Another added: “The police have been here all night and that’s all I’ve seen.”

And another said: “I saw there were some cars there last night with lights but that’s it.”

Officers and police car remain at the scene this morning (Sunday) with a police cordon in place in the middle of Queen’s Road.

Anyone trying to access Worting Road will have to take a detour via George Street and Alexandra Road.
