Police are appealing for information regarding the whereabouts of a 23-year-old man who officers would like to speak to in connection with an assault.
It happened in the Fairwater area of Cwmbran on Tuesday 14 April.
Jamie Lee Dyas is described as being of slim build with brown hair with a tattoo of a skull on his upper right arm.
If anyone has seen Mr Dyas or has any information about his whereabouts they are asked to call Gwent Police on 101.
A woman arrested on suspicion of attempting to murder her mother has been detained under the Mental Health Act, police say.
Police were called to Gwyrddgoed Road, Pontardawe at around 5.45pm on Monday, where a 63-year-old woman was found with multiple stab wounds. She remains in a critical but stable condition at Morriston Hospital.
Her 32-year-old daughter was arrested at the scene and South Wales Police say she has since been detained under the Mental Health Act and transferred into the care of health services.
The number of new properties coming onto the market in Wales increased in March, but the supply boost failed to excite buyers, as potential new buyers declined according to the latest Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) UK Residential Market Survey.
House prices stagnated with just 4% more surveyors in Wales reporting an increase – bucking the trend across much of the rest of the UK where 21% more surveyors reporting a rise in house prices in March (up from 15% in February).
The Institute of Advanced Motorists has discovered four people have been caught at speeds in excess of 120mph on roads in Wales in 2014 - with one even being caught at 136mph.
This is one of the worst cases of speeding caught on a safety camera in Great Britain in the past year.
The findings come as a result of a Freedom of Information request made by the IAM.
The charity made the request to the four Welsh police forces, asking for details of their top five instances of excessive speeding captured on safety cameras on their roads in 2014.
Wales' worst speeder was recorded by North Wales Police at 136mph on the A5 Ty Nant to Dinmael road in Conwy, which has a speed limit of 60mph - thus breaking the limit by 76mph.
The A5 also saw two further instances of 120mph-plus recorded; 122mph on the Ty Nant-Cerrigydrudion stretch in Conwy; and 121mph at Halton, Wrexham.
The final case of 120mph being exceeded in Wales was captured by South Wales Police: 125mph on the M4 between Junction 35 Pencoed and Junction 34 Miskin, where a 70mph limit is in force.
Those guilty of this level of excessive speeding are clearly not deterred by a short ban or fine. Their minds need to be concentrated to appreciate that they are putting other road users at significant danger by acting in this way. It is crucial that drivers and riders receive continuous development.

Firefighters are to return to the site of a large fire which began yesterday evening on farmland in Ynyshir, Rhondda Cynon Taff.
South Wales Fire and Rescue says the fire started on scrubland before spreading to 1,000 recycled tyres on on a nearby farm.
Crews were forced to leave the site yesterday evening when it became too dangerous to tackle the blaze in the dark.
They will return this morning to assess the situation and investigate how the initial fire began.
