Police have arrested two men after a woman was stabbed in the back as she walked in a busy shopping street.

The 35-year-old victim was attacked outside Barclays Bank in London Road, Portsmouth, Hampshire, at 3.20pm on Saturday.

Eyewitness Gary Hale told the Portsmouth News: "There was a woman with a knife sticking out of her back. It was awful.

"I went over straight away and another woman was screaming for an ambulance. She looked in shock so I kept talking to her to tell her that she was going to be okay but I could tell she was petrified.''

It is understood that the woman's injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

A Hampshire Police spokesman said: "A 42-year-old man of no fixed address has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. He is in police custody. A 41-year-old man from Portsmouth remains in police custody. He was arrested on suspicion of conspire to murder.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101.
