Man charged over Scunthorpe woman and boy attack

A man has been charged with the attempted murder of a woman and the assault of a young boy who were found injured at a house in Scunthorpe.

The 23-year-old woman suffered serious injuries to her shoulder, neck and chest in the attack at the house on Salisbury Close on Saturday.

The child, six, suffered a minor cut in the incident.

A 26-year-old man from Scunthorpe was charged over the attack and police are appealing for witnesses.

Officers are asking a dog-walker believed to have been close to the house at the time to come forward, as he might have seen or heard something.

The woman is being treated at Castle Hill Hospital, police have said.
