Horror as boy, 10, stabbed in street in front of his mum - urgent police appeal 1

The man is said to be around 5ft 10ins tall, chubby build, and was wearing a brown coloured jacket at the time of the attack.

Emergency services were called to the scene and the child was rushed to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, where his condition is described as non-life-threatening.

The boy’s mum was not injured during the incident and the man fled the scene immediately after attacking the youngster.

Witnesses are being asked to come forward and police are calling for any CCTV footage of the area to be handed in to help identify a man wanted over the attack.

Neighbour Dinu Patel, 62, who lives in Carter Street, said she felt very worried for her safety after the stabbing.

She said her husband looked out of the window and saw about seven police cars.

Mrs Patel said: “The police were here at night looking around at the top of the street.

“We didn’t know anything about what happened and we didn’t hear anything before the police arrived.

“They didn’t say what was happening – it’s pretty scary.”

Detective Inspector Tim Lindley of Leicestershire Police said: “This was an act of violence against a young child who was out, in the street, with his mother.

“It happened in a residential area at a time of day when there would have been people about, either on foot or driving through.

“We need to find who was responsible for injuring this boy.

“If you were in the area of Belper Street between the times of 4.30pm and 6.30pm and saw what happened or a man matching this description we want to hear from you.”
