56-year-old John Anthony Woodland, a builder who lives in a flat in Shalimar Gardens was charged last Friday (May 25th) with Grievous Bodily Harm.

Woodland appeared at Ealing Magistrates the following day and was remanded in custody to appear at Isleworth Crown Court on 6th June.

A 39 year old woman has been bailed to a west London police station until 17th July pending further enquiries.

The arrests were made after police were called to outside 27a Shalimar Gardens, off Horn Lane, to reports of a stabbing on May 23rd at around 1:00am.

Officers arrived to find a 36-year-old man suffering from stab wounds. The man, who has since been named as Steve Shillingford, was taken by ambulance to the West Middlesex Hospital and he was later transferred to Paddington Hospital. His condition is described as serious.

Police believe more than one person attacked the man during an altercation. Mr. Shillingford was also burned with boiling water during the attack.

They are trying to piece together exactly what happened and anyone who saw the victim during the evening or witnessed the incident should contact either Ealing Borough CID on Tel: 020 8721 7060 or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

One resident said: "A man was stabbed in the neck about 1am this morning. A domestic I think. I live in Shalimar Gardens and I heard him shouting in the middle of the road this morning. There was loads of police and ambulances and there was a helicopter flying really low. The man was apparently in a bad state"

Police have conducted house-to-house enquiries.
