UK: Man arrested on suspicion of murder after woman in her 20s 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.

Shortly after midnight, officers launched a “large scale” manhunt to arrest a named suspect.

Footage showed a large police presence and an air ambulance nearby.

Dozens of armed officers were also reported to be at the scene and a number of road cordons were in place.

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.”
