Officers remain in place at the house on Burdock Close after the incident, which is understood to have been a stabbing, after being called shortly before midnight on Saturday evening.

Police said today they were called after concerns for the safety of an occupant were raised and when they arrived on scene they found a man with serious injuries.

Neighbours said they saw officers “running around the place” when police descended on the scene.

The victim was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment.

A woman in her 60s has been arrested in connection with the assault and remains in police custody awaiting questioning.

A neighbour in her early 40s, who had just moved to the area two weeks ago, said six police cars and an ambulance arrived.

“We just saw blue lights flashing through our door,” she said. “We saw people running in all directions and thought someone had maybe been attacked.

“It is not nice especially when you have just moved somewhere you think is a nice area.”

Another neighbour, 45, said: “There were police cars parked all around the square and all the police were running towards the house over there.

“They were only here for about half an hour.

“She was led across the square in handcuffs and put in a police car just outside our house.

“It was 15 to 20 minutes before they brought a trolley to the outside of the ambulance and brought him out and they were giving him CPR.”
