A man has been taken to hospital after he was stabbed at a Basingstoke churchyard on Easter Sunday.

Police were called at 6:12pm on April 4 to the grounds of Holy Ghost Chapel, on Chapel Hill, where a 20-year-old man had been attacked.

At the scene, an unidentified woman gave first aid to the victim, before he was taken to hospital for treatment. A spokesman for the police said his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

An 18-year-old man from Basingstoke was subsequently arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent. He remains in custody.

However, police are keen to learn more about the incident from any potential witnesses in the area.

In a statement, Hampshire Constabulary said: “We have conducted a number of enquiries over the past couple of days but are now turning to the public for help.

“Were you in the area at the time? Perhaps you saw two groups meeting near to the cemetery, or have private CCTV that could assist our enquiries?

“We are also keen to hear from a woman who gave first aid to the victim at the scene.

“Anyone with information is asked to phone 101 with reference 44210126765. Alternatively, you can phone Crimestoppers 100 per cent anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
