Crime update

Alert message sent 04/03/2020 13:39:00

Information sent on behalf of Durham Constabulary

Good afternoon local residents.

Over the weekend there was an incident in The Crescent, Chester le Street where a 23 year old woman sustained stab wounds and required hospital treatment.

Two local individuals, Neil Wright, 44, and Leanne Pope, 39, have been remanded in custody after appearing at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates’ Court on Monday. The pair, both of The Crescent, will appear at Durham Crown Court on Friday, March 13.

The investigation will continue by CID until the matter is dealt with at court, and any information can be passed to us under incident reference DHM-01032020-0030.

Whilst these are really serious offences and we are satisfied that the right people are being held to account for their actions, there is no information to suggest that any other members of the general public are at risk. We will be continuing to patrol the area and would encourage anybody with any concerns to come and speak with us and keep engaging with us through Keep In The Know (Durham & Darlington Talking).

Thank you,
Chester le Street Neighbourhood Policing Team.
