Grantham

A 27-year-old man from Grantham has been charged with grievous bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon after a stabbing in the town on Tuesday morning.

Police were called to an address on Thames Road at around 2.30am on Tuesday, June 15 after reports of a disturbance.

Officers were then called to the same address just hours later, where a man in his 30s had been seriously injured and had knife wounds.

The man is currently receiving treatment for his injuries, and police believe them not to be life-threatening.

A 31-year-old woman, a 40-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man were arrested and remanded in custody in connection with the assault, and the latter, Nathan Joseph, has now been charged.

Nathan Joseph, of St Catherine’s Road in Grantham, is due to appear at Lincoln Magistrates Court on Thursday, and the two women have been released on police bail.

Police have described the investigations and response as a “robust policing effort” with specialist armed response officers and search teams involved.

Officers said in a statement that they were not looking for anyone else in connection to the incident.

Deliveroo is continuing to expand across Lincolnshire and will launch in Grantham and Boston this July.

The UK delivery company is currently looking for new riders to help deliver food to customers in the towns.

So far this year it has already launched in Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Spalding, with Grantham and Boston now ready to follow suit next month.

Rider demand has soared for Deliveroo over the last year, and there are now 50,000 people who work for the company across the UK.

All riders are being offered free medical insurance and training courses, and you can find out how to apply on the Deliveroo website.

Harrison Foster, Deliveroo’s UK Regional Director, said: “We’ve seen a huge demand for Deliveroo in Grantham and Boston and we’re excited to be launching next month. We’re really excited to be creating new work opportunities for local people.

“The team is looking for people with passion, drive and great customer service who are seeking the added benefit of flexible work amongst other perks. Anyone who’s interested should head over to our website to sign up.”

Police investigating the suspected stabbing of a man in Grantham have made three further arrests.

A 31-year-old woman, a 40-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man have been remanded into police custody on June 16 in connection with the serious assault on Thames Road on June 15.

As reported at the time, the victim, in his 30s, was found at a property on Thames Road at around 2.30am with a serious injury, consistent with a knife wound.

He was taken to hospital for treatment. His injuries were not described as life-threatening.

A fourth person was also arrested on June 15, but has been released on police bail.

Since the attack, armed officers, investigators, search teams and response officers have been carrying out searches for their suspect in the area, particularly the Bridge End Road end of the town.

It is not yet clear if a weapon has been located.

Lincolnshire Police said in a statement: “We would like to reassure the public that we are not looking for anyone else in connection to this incident. Enquiries are ongoing.

“We would like to thank the public for their assistance. If anyone has any further information, please contact us via 101 quoting incident 41 of June 15.”
