A second person has been arrested after an attack on a man which saw armed police called to a children's park in Jersey.

The 37-year old man was arrested in St Helier on suspicion of attempted murder.

Armed police closed and searched Millbrook children's park on Monday afternoon, amid reports a man was being attacked.

It follows the arrest of a 22-year old woman on Monday for the same offence.

A 31-year-old man was taken to hospital with a serious neck injury.

Det Insp Steve Langford from the States of Jersey Police said: "A female and a male were involved in the attack.

"Firearms officers were deployed but purely for public safety."

Police described it as an "isolated incident" and said the parties were known to each other.
