Man arrested on suspicion of murder after woman found seriously injured dies in Dewsbury

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman in her 20s died in West Yorkshire.

Police found her badly injured at a property in Dearnley Street in the Ravensthorpe area of Dewsbury at 6.43pm on Sunday.

"Despite emergency medical attention at the scene, she tragically passed away a short time later," said West Yorkshire Police.

Police have said they are not looking for anyone else after they had launched a large-scale search for a "named suspect".

Footage showed a large police presence and an air ambulance nearby, while dozens of armed officers were also reported to be at the scene and a number of road cordons were in place.

Dearnley Street, which is opposite a primary school, was sealed off on Monday morning with police guarding both ends and a further presence outside one of the terraced houses.

At around 5.50am, the force said the manhunt had ended - with a 35-year-old man now in custody.

The victim's name has not yet been disclosed.

"We recognise the concern and worry this will have caused to residents in the local area and are conducting an extensive investigation into what took place," said Detective Chief Superintendent Sarah Jones.

"A man has now been arrested on suspicion of murder and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the matter which is being treated as a domestic-related incident."

'We were worried'

Residents said they were scared as police flooded the area overnight before the man was arrested, with one woman who lives nearby saying she could hear a helicopter above her house.

She said "We were worried. It's a scary thing that's happened. It's on our doorstep, we've got children.

"My daughter was scared to death last night when we heard what had happened. She didn't want to go to sleep."

"We went to check all the doors to make sure they were locked," she added.
