A WOMAN has been arrested after a man was assaulted in Middlewich.

A 31-year-old woman from Middlewich was arrested on suspicion of attempted wounding with intent and has been released under investigation.

A 32-year-old man from Sandbach was assaulted on Booth Lane at 1.50am on Sunday, November 3. 

The victim suffered minor injuries to his face which required treatment in hospital.

Officers are also investigating whether the man was hit by a red Vauxhall Corsa. 

Pavements on Booth Lane and Long Lane South were cordoned off for several hours as police launched an investigation.

Residents reported seeing forensic teams taking pictures of numbered evidence markers on the pavement and road.

Detective Sergeant Steve Smith, of Crewe Local Policing Unit, said: “We are currently following a number of lines of enquiry and I am appealing to the public to come forward if they were in the area at the time or have any information – no matter how small. 

“I would particularly like to speak to a man who assisted the victim on Booth Lane as he may have information which could help with our investigation.

“If you have dashcam footage between 1am and 1.50am around the Booth Lane area please submit it through to us.”
