Police were called at 19:45 to reports of an assault at an address at Wootton Lodge, off Church Road.
A large number of officers responded to the scene alongside the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service, which dispatched a single ambulance crew.
It has been confirmed this morning that a woman sustained a cut to her head during the incident, which required hospital treatment. However, the injury is not deemed serious.
