Woman stabbed by another woman in Portsmouth

A woman has been stabbed in a fight with another woman in Portsmouth.

Police were called to the Hilsea Lido car park on Thursday evening after a 30-year-old woman suffered stab injuries to her leg and arm.

She was taken to the Queen Alexandra Hospital but is not thought to be seriously hurt.

A 36-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of blackmail and wounding with intent. She was bailed until 21 December pending further inquiries.

Man on crutches

Det Con Ann Keir said: "We believe this was an isolated incident.

"It happened during daylight hours and at a location popular with cyclists, dog-walkers and runners.

"To assist with our inquiries, I would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened."

Det Con Keir urged a man on crutches, who helped give first aid to the stabbed woman, to contact police.
