Police were called to Collingwood Street, Denton Holme, at about midday yesterday after a man sustained leg injuries.

The 24-year-old Carlisle man was taken to the Cumberland Infirmary with what police described as minor injuries. He has now been discharged.

Officers cordoned off the area while forensic investigations were carried out.

A 21-year-old woman was arrested in connection with the incident but police have confirmed that no further action is being taken.

Neighbours, many of whom were at home enjoying a relaxing bank holiday, reported hearing arguments at the property late in the morning.

About lunchtime they were then alerted to the incident by the sound of sirens.

There were reports of blood on the pavement.

One neighbour told the News & Star: “There were police cars and ambulances. We didn’t know what was going on.”

Another said: “They’ve only been here about a month so nobody really knows them.”

Following the incident, police tape remained in place around the terraced house while contractors cleaned up the street outside. A police car remained outside the house all afternoon.
