A man has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent after a man was stabbed outside a house in a Surrey village.

The man, in his 40s, was taken to hospital with injuries to his abdomen, which police say are not believed to be life-threatening.

Emergency crews were called to Kemsley Road, Tatsfield, at about 07:20 GMT.

After speaking to witnesses, they arrested a man in his 60s, who is being questioned by detectives.


Det Con Craig Giles, of Surrey Police, said: "This was a frightening incident for those who witnessed the assault and the aftermath, and I hope the quick arrest goes some way to reassure the Tatsfield community."

Kemsley Road is said to be a quiet road in a village close to the Surrey-Kent border.

Neighbours spoke of police activity, including use of dogs, while a helicopter landed in the village.

A police spokeswoman declined to say whether the victim lived in the road.
