Attempted murder arrest over Lincolnshire village ‘stabbing’

A man was seriously injured

Update 9.20pm, 14 November

We have arrested a 19-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with a suspected stabbing in Holton-Le-Clay this evening.

He was arrested in Grimsby a short time ago and remains in police custody. We believe this to be an isolated incident, and the people believed to be involved were known to each other.

We continue to carry out enquiries in the local area, and would ask anyone with information to come forward.
