Thurrock man arrested on suspicion of attempted murder
A MAN from Thurrock has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
The arrest comes as a 17-year-old man remains in a critical condition in hospital after he was run over and stabbed near Chelmsford on Thursday, November 21.
A 22-year-old from Thurrock was arrested at his home address on Monday, December 3. Another man, Richard Frost, 35, from Chelmsford was arrested at a police station.
The pair are being questioned over the incident which took place in Dorset Avenue, Great Baddow.
At around 10.15pm on November 21, a BMW mounted the pavement at speed and hit a 17-year-old.
The teenager was then stabbed twice in the lower body before the driver sped off.
Police are also searching for Frost's partner, Kay Phillips, 26 and the couple's five-month-old son following concerns for their welfare.
Police have been unable to contact Miss Phillips to ascertain hers and the baby's safety.
A fresh appeal has been issued asking for Miss Phillips - or anyone who knows of her whereabouts - to contact police.
She is described as white, approximately 5ft 4in tall and has shoulder-length or long blonde hair.
Anyone with information regarding Miss Phillips or the baby is urged to call 999.
Information is also still being sought regarding the attempted murder with witnesses urged to contact detectives in the incident room at Brentwood on 101.
