Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Kather­ine Clemen­tine

A MAN has been charged with GBH with in­tent af­ter stab­bing his vic­tim in the stom­ach in Hayes.

Metropoli­tan Police of­fi­cers were called at 6.35pm on Satur­day, March 26 to Se­lan Gar­dens, Hayes, where a 36-year-old man was found at the scene with a stab wound to his ab­domen.

He was taken to hospital by Lon­don Am­bu­lance Ser­vice (LAS) suf­fer­ing se­ri­ous in­juries, but he has now been dis­charged from hospital.

De­tec­tives in­ves­ti­gat­ing the se­ri­ous as­sault charged Bhupin­der Su­man, 40, of Se­lan Gar­dens, on Mon­day March 28 with one of­fence of griev­ous bod­ily harm with in­tent and one of­fence of threat­en­ing a per­son with an of­fen­sive weapon in a pub­lic place.

He was kept in cus­tody to ap­pear at Uxbridge Mag­is­trates’ Court the same day and re­manded in cus­tody by the court.

Su­man will next ap­pear at Isle­worth Crown Court on April 25.

The al­leged of­fence has caused fear among neigh­bours who saw the af­ter­math of the in­ci­dent un­fold.

An eye­wit­ness, who did not want to be named, was con­cerned af­ter see­ing blue lights and emer­gency ve­hi­cles in the street.

They said: “There have been peo­ple walk­ing in and out with blue suits ever since and police vans come up and down the street a few times ev­ery day.

“Last month, a black cab was bro­ken into and set alight, then some time later one of the garages was set alight too.

“No­body on our road knows ex­actly what hap­pened, who did it and why. We have a right to know. Af­ter all, it’s mak­ing us all feel un­safe.”

A fur­ther two men, one aged 43 and an­other aged 32, were ar­rested on Wed­nes­day, March 30.

Both men have been bailed to ap­pear at a police sta­tion on dates in late April and early May.
