|Man Charged with Attempted Murder after Acton Green Attack|
Female victim emerged from toilet block with bloodied face
A man has been charged with attempted murder after a woman was found on Acton Green Common with a fractured skull.
Shortly before 5:21pm on 9 March the sound of an altercation was heard coming from within toilet cubicle at the north end of the park near the junction of South Parade and Acton Lane.
Passers-by, including people walking their dogs, attempted unsuccessfully to open the door.
When door did eventually open, a woman stumbled out with blood all over her face saying ‘help me’. A man then emerged holding what appeared to be a rock.
The emergency services were called, and prior to their arrival, members of the public ensured the man did not leave the scene. He waited impassively making no attempt to flee.
Subsequently 31-year-old Dylan Jeffrey Beecroft was arrested at the scene and charged with attempted murder the following day.
He appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, 11 March and is next due to appear at the Old Bailey on 15 March.
The 44-year-old woman was taken to a west London hospital where her injuries were found to be non-life threatening.
