Woman released on bail after incident at New Cross Hospital

We’ve released a woman on bail as we continue to investigate a report of an attack on a health care assistant at New Cross Hospital.

The 47-year-old, from Wolverhampton, was arrested yesterday (Wednesday 21 July) on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

She was released after questioning with strict bail conditions which include not going to the hospital unless in an emergency.

We are working closely with the hospital and have told them of this latest development.  

We were called to the site just before 11am on Tuesday after a report that a member of staff had been stabbed.

A 21-year-old man who was arrested at the scene was later dearrested and is no longer part of the investigation. We’d like to thank him once again for helping us.

The worker who was injured was released from hospital following treatment.
