The culprit remains at large.

His victim suffered minor injuries to his back and pelvis and was taken to hospital by ambulance but the axe is not believed to have penetrated his skin. Around 25 minutes after the attack, police officers stopped a car on the nearby Severnside estate and arrested the driver –  a 37 year-old woman –  on suspicion of assisting an offender.

She remains in police custody this afternoon.
