Forensics arrived at the scene – read the latest here.


We have launched an investigation after a woman has suffered multiple injuries at a property in George Boole Drive, Lincoln.

Officers were alerted by the ambulance service that a woman in her 40’s had suffered significant injuries at 4.10am this morning (17 August).

On arrival, they found a woman with what is believed to be stab wounds to her back, arm and chest. She received treatment on the scene before being transported to hospital where she remains in a serious condition.

Following a swift response by officers, a 39-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder 13 minutes after the call was received. He remains in police custody.

We believe this is an isolated incident and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident.

Officers remain on scene and in the local area today while we carry out enquiries.

We are now appealing for anyone with information about the incident to come forward with any details they can share to help our investigation.
