Cumbrian murder bid suspect in coma

A suspected knifeman was in a coma today after reportedly jumping from a second storey window following the alleged attempted murder of a woman in Penrith.

The 32-year-old was arrested by police before slipping into a coma after the woman was knifed at a house in Alexandra Road in the early hours of this morning.

Officers confirmed the man and woma, both of whom are Romanian, live at the house. It was unclear, however, what their relationship was.

The force said an investigation was underway after officers were called to “a disturbance” at the house at 12.30am.

They found the woman, 22, had been stabbed in the arm.

The man had suffered a serious head injury. Officers said this happened to him “after allegedly jumping from a second storey window”.

The man was understood to be conscious at first before lapsing into unconsciousness.

He later came-to and was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. After this he fell into a coma after being taken to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.

The injured woman was treated at the city hospital before being discharged, said police.

“The man remains in a coma in hospital,” added a spokeswoman.

“Police officers seized a knife from the scene and the area was cordoned off while crime scene investigation teams investigated.”

Is it time to reintroduce the dog licence?

Yes - It would certainly make people more responsible about looking after their pets

No - Some people will just abandon dogs whether they've paid for a licence or not

Maybe - but also all dogs should be microchipped and tagged so owners can be traced
