Update on investigation into New Cross Hospital stabbing
We have arrested a woman following reports of a staff member being stabbed at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton yesterday (Tuesday).
The 47-year-old woman was arrested just after midday today (Wednesday) on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
She remains in police custody this afternoon as our enquiries continue to establish exactly what happened and we are working closely with the hospital on this.
At this time we’re not looking for anyone else in connection with the crime.
A man arrested by officers at the scene yesterday has been de-arrested. We thank him for his co-operation and he is no longer part of our enquiries.
The woman who was hurt in the incident was discharged from hospital yesterday evening following treatment for minor injuries.
