Emergency services were called to an address after neighbours heard shouting and screaming at about 8.35am. Paramedics found a young man severely injured who appeared to have been assaulted by another man in the house.
A witness said he heard “screaming” coming from the house shortly before 8am.
He said: “The man was taken out of the house on a stretcher. Paramedics were massaging his heart as they were putting him in the ambulance.
“Another man was in a very agitated state outside and screaming down the phone at someone.”
The victim, who was in his 20s, was taken to hospital where his condition was described as critical. The assailant, a man in his 30s, was arrested on suspicion of assault and taken to the Police station for questioning. The Police are launching a full investigation into the incident.
A Police spokesman said: “A 30-year-old man …….. has been arrested on suspicion of assault. He has been taken to a police station in for questioning.”
