A Kirk Hallam woman has been charged after three arrests were made in the wake of a serious assault in West Hallam on Saturday.

At around 1pm on 25th March, armed officers were amongst those included in the response to a call to attend a property in Peveril Crescent, whilst an air ambulance landed in a field off St. Wilfrid's Road.

Police officers have been stationed outside the door of a property whilst a number of police cars were seen parked in the area and it is also thought that plain clothes detectives have been working locally.

A Derbyshire Police spokesperson said that a man in his 20s had been seriously assaulted in what was described as "a domestic incident".  He was taken to hospital in a critical condition but was more recently described as being in a "serious condition", but no further details have been released as to the nature of his injuries and how they were sustained.

A woman and two men were initially arrested in connection with the incident, although officers were not looking for anyone else, but local residents were warned to expect an increased police presence in the area as investigations continued. 

However, 23 year old Mille Bryan of Buckminster Road, Kirk Hallam has since been charged with a section 18 offence relating to 'grievous bodily harm with intent' and was remanded into police custody. She appeared before Southern Derbyshire Magistrates on Monday 27th March and was released on court bail.   Two others have been released without charge.

A number of local residents are understood to be quite upset about the incident and the impact on usually quiet and calm local life.  Detective Inspector Rebecca Hall said: "We understand that incidents such as this are unusual for the area and we understand that residents would have been concerned given the level of police response.  However, after officers responded quickly, and arrested three people, we have now charged a woman in connection with the incident".
