Attempted murder arrest following Bedfordshire assault

A 38-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a man was found in his home with serious head injuries.

A 46-year-old was discovered at a flat above the Shaanti Indian Restaurant on Leighton Road at Heath and Reach near Leighton Buzzard on May 11.

He is now recovered and has been able to speak to police. Officers believe the assault took place between midnight and 6am.

The woman has been released on bail.

DS Facer said: “Although we have arrested a person in connection with this investigation this still doesn’t mean this inquiry has been completed. We still need to trace anyone who may have seen or heard any unusual activity during this key six-hour period.”
