Search for 'blood-stained' clothing after stabbing

Police investigating the stabbing of a woman in Leeds are searching for clothing linked to the attack.

The 26-year-old was found with multiple stab wounds at an address on Naburn Place on 8 June.

Officers believe a black rucksack, a red tartan checked shirt, tan coloured trainers and a pair of blue jeans were "discarded somewhere in the area".

Neil Wilson, 36, of Ashfield Terrace, Swarcliffe, has been charged with attempted murder.

West Yorkshire Police said: "Given the nature of the incident, it's possible the [clothing] could be blood-stained."
