The Police have confirmed that a man in his 30’s has been charged with offences in relation to a report of a stabbing incident that occurred in Ramsey on Sunday September 12.

A female and a police officer were treated in hospital for serious but not life threatening injuries they each sustained during a struggle with the man, who was also treated for self-inflicted serious injuries. The man has been in police custody and will appear in Douglas Courthouse this afternoon.

Detective Inspector Michelle McKillop said: ‘This incident was extremely frightening and upsetting for all involved. The serious nature of what happened is not lost on any of the investigating team or wider police family and was harrowing for family involved and the officers on duty that night. It is fortunate that the injuries each party sustained were not more serious.’

Police ask that the public refrain from making comment on social media about the incident in order to protect any future Court Proceedings and to avoid upset for all involved.
