A 13-YEAR-OLD boy is among 3 people who have been arrested after a woman was stabbed to death in Rushden in Northamptonshire, England.
The young boy and two 27-year-old men are being held on suspicion of murder after a 25-year-old woman was attacked and killed on Wellingborough Road near St George’s Way around 8.30pm yesterday evening (Saturday, December 7).
After reports that a woman was lying in a pool of blood on the street, emergency services rushed to the scene. However, despite the best efforts of paramedics, she sadly could not be saved.
In response to the harrowing incident, Detective Inspector Pete Long has appealed for witnesses who were in the area at the time to come forward as they may have critical information. He said:
“This was an extremely tragic incident in which a young woman has lost her life and I want to reassure people that we are doing all we can to bring those responsible to justice.
“This incident has really shocked the Rushden community, many of whom were on the scene last night, and I would ask anyone who was there and saw what happened to please come forward with your information.
“Likewise, if anyone has any information about last night’s events or any dashcam footage of the area at the time, please come forward.”
As Euro Weekly News understands, there will be increased police patrols in the area by neighbourhood and response officers to reassure the local community.
