A WOMAN is recovering in hospital from stab wounds after she was attacked in her Sheffield home.

The 32-year-old, who has not been named, was knifed in her house in Fulford Place, Darnall.

She was rushed to the Northern General Hospital and was said to be in a stable condition yesterday.

Her road was cordoned off by police after the alarm was raised. Neighbours said they spotted armed police patrolling the area in the aftermath of the attack.

They also said forensics experts spent the day after the attack combing the woman’s house, garden, neighbouring gardens and the street.

One woman, who did not want to be named, said: “The police came and asked us if we had seen or heard anything but after our blinds are closed at night we don’t know what goes on outside.

“My husband came in after having a cigarette at 11pm and said there were police everywhere and the road was cordoned off. There were armed police too and forensics people.

“I know the woman who lives in the house where this happened has a little girl, and I asked the police if she was okay and they said she was, which I am pleased about because she is a lovely little girl.”

A police spokeswoman confirmed: “Police were called to an address in Darnall, Sheffield, following reports a woman had been stabbed in a domestic related incident. The 32-year-old woman received stab wounds to her upper body and was conveyed to the Northern General Hospital, where she was treated for her wounds and remains in a stable condition. Inquiries are ongoing. Anyone with information should contact South Yorkshire Police.”

No arrests had yet been made.
