POLICE have arrested a 39-year-old woman on suspicion of attempted murder after a pregnant woman was found stabbed in the grounds of a Liverpool infant school.
The victim suffered multiple stab wounds after the attack in the grounds of Lister Infant School in Stoneycroft.
She remains in hospital where her condition is described as stable. Doctors are also carrying out tests on her unborn baby.
Emergency services were called to Green Lane around 12.30pm, where officers found the 28-year-old pregnant woman with multiple stab wounds.
Police arrested the woman, from the Stoneycroft area, shortly after the incident. She is being held for questioning at a local police station.
The attack happened on a walkway within the grounds but away from classrooms. It is not believed any children witnessed the stabbing.
Detective Inspector Martin Earl said: "This was a despicable attack on a vulnerable lady, who has been taken to hospital for treatment.
"This must have been very distressing for anyone who saw it and I would like to reassure residents that this type of incident is isolated and was not related to the nearby school. However, there may have been parents in the area who are able to assist our investigation.
"I would urge anyone who has any information to get in contact."
Merseyside Police would urge anyone who witnessed this incident, or who has any information to contact 0151 777 4065 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
