A woman has been taken to hospital after being found at a flat with a stab wound and ‘slash injuries’.
Police were called by paramedics to a property in Herle Avenue, Braunstone, at about 4.50am yesterday (May 27).
The East Midlands Ambulance Service, who took the woman to hospital, had been called to the flat earlier.
Residents said that police taped the house off yesterday and two patrol cars were parked outside the address for most of the day.
A resident, who did not want to be named, said: “An ambulance had been at the flat earlier.
“When I went past the property had been taped off for scene preservation I think.
“There were two police cars there with two officers in one of the vehicles.
“We obviously don’t know what happened but it must have been pretty serious for the level of police activity.”
A Leicestershire Police spokeswoman said: “Police were called to a flat in Herle Avenue, Braunstone, by East Midlands Ambulance Service at around 4.50am yesterday morning (27 May) following a report of a woman injured inside.
“Officers attended the address and an investigation is underway to determine how the woman sustained her injuries and the full circumstances surrounding the incident. House to house enquiries have been carried out in the area.
“The woman remains in hospital in stable condition while enquiries being carried out by officers continue.”
