A woman has been stabbed multiple times in the leg as she walked along a Loughborough street during the early hours of yesterday.
The victim, who is in her 20s, was in the area of Burleigh Road at around 2.25am on Sunday (9 June) when the incident took place.
The woman saw a man on a bicycle. The man then ran up to her and spoke to her. When the victim moved away, the suspect grabbed her forearm and pulled her to the floor.
The victim tried to defend herself which led to the suspect stabbing her three times to her upper thigh before making off.
The woman was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham to receive treatment for her serious injuries.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing GBH with intent. He currently remains in Police custody.
Detective Constable Clare Moore said: “An arrest has been made but our investigation into the incident remains very much ongoing.”
“I am appealing to anyone who was out in this area of Loughborough during the early hours of Sunday morning to please think back to anything which you saw or heard which caused you concern.”
“If you have any information at all, I urge you to get in touch.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Leicestershire Police on 101.
