A woman has been charged with perverting the course of justice in connection with an attempted murder investigation.

Charlotte Greenhalgh was arrested yesterday (Thursday) by officers in relation to an alleged hit-and-run in Ripley that left a man with life-threatening injuries.

The 19-year-old, of Downmeadow, Heage, is accused of making threats to people connected to that investigation.

Greenhalgh has now been charged with perverting the course of justice and has been remanded into custody by magistrates.

An attempted murder investigation was launched after a 27-year-old was allegedly struck by an Audi in as he walked along Derby Road, Ripley, in the early hours of October 21.

He was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre with a number of serious, life-changing injuries and remains in a serious condition in hospital.

Detective Inspector Lyndsey Curtis, who is leading the investigation, said: “We have a team of detectives working on this investigation and we want to hear from anyone who might be able to help.

“I would urge anyone who might have witnessed the incident or know something about it to get in touch with us.

“It is essential that people are not put off from speaking to us, and there are a variety of ways they can do this.

“This includes calling us on 101, ringing Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or sending us a message via our new Twitter profile, @DerbyshireCID.”

A 22-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder in relation to the incident. Jake Greenhalgh, of Downmeadow, Heage, and the brother of Charlotte, was charged last month and was also remanded into custody.

Four other people who were arrested last month have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
