A Welwyn Garden City man who was charged with attempted murder after a stabbing last week has now been named.

On Monday, February 26, at around 7.15pm, a man was stabbed in the chest and arms in Hall Grove, leaving him with serious but non life-threatening injuries.

A man was charged with attempted murder on Friday, March 1, but police were unable name him publicly at the time.

The Welwyn Hatfield Times can now confirm that 22-year-old Aaron Douglas, of Beehive Lane in Welwyn Garden City was the man charged, and he has been remanded into custody.

"We hope that the news that we have charged an individual in relation to the events earlier in the week, will come as reassurance to the local community," said Detective Inspector Bianca Broadbent, who is leading the investigation from the Welwyn Hatfield Local Crime Unit.

"Police also received reports of two further incidents - one of vehicle tyres being slashed in the Little Gannett and Great Gannett area on Monday, and one of criminal damage and threats made on Wednesday in Moors Walk, and we think these may be linked.
