POLICE have launched an attempted murder probe after sealing off a home in Eastleigh.

Officers have set up a cordon around a home in Heinz Burt Close this morning.

A police car is also parked outside the house.

Now police have revealed they have arrested three people following what they describe as a 'serious assault' in which a man was injured.

They say a 23-year-old man, from Winchester, was found inside an address with a serious head injury at around 10.15pm last night (December 21).

The man was taken to Southampton General Hospital, where his condition is currently described as life-threatening.

His next of kin have been informed.

A 17-year-old man and a 17-year-old woman, both from Eastleigh, have both been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

A 48-year-old man, from Bursledon, has been arrested on suspicion of GBH.

Police say they all remain in custody at this time.

Officers will be carrying out house-to-house enquiries in the area.

It comes as one resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said a woman was heard screaming and a man was arrested.

An ambulance was seen outside the property, as well as police officers.

Another resident said: "We walked out and I just saw blood everywhere.

"I could just see blood I didn't know where it was from."
