Residents in Wyld's Lane were left "terrified" after 20+ armed police officers swarmed the road before arresting two men on suspicion of attempted murder.

People living in the road watched in fear from their windows as police descended on the road in Worcester at 3.20 pm yesterday (January 11).

One resident said: "We were absolutely terrified. We are still shaken up, it was awful.

"It really worries you when this kind of thing happens so close to where you live.

"It is safe to say we all locked our doors as tight as we could last night."

Police say they received reports of a serious assault.

Two men were injured during the incident and have been transferred to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham by ambulance.

One of the victims, a 49-year-old man, is reported to have suffered serious injuries.

The neighbour said: "Wyld's Lane does have a bit of a reputation for crime-related incidents, but this was nothing like we had experienced.

"It felt like there were 20+ officers in the road that were armed, with at least five big police vehicles.

"There was a lot of commotion and swearing whilst officers were trying to enter a house.

"It was all such a shock."

There was a heavy police presence in the area after the incident, following through into the night whilst the investigations continue.

There are significantly fewer officers and police vehicles at the scene today.

Two men, aged 23 and 48, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and are in police custody.

Last night, Insp Fergus Green, said: “We understand that incidents of this nature, and a large police presence, can be concerning for the public.

"I would like to reassure residents that we believe this to be an isolated incident and there is no threat to the wider community.”
