Following concerned reports, a three-hour standoff, and the forced entry of a property where two 10-year-old boys with sustained stab wounds were discovered, police arrested a woman for attempted murder.
Three hour stand-off sees woman arrested for attempted murder of ‘two 10-year-old boys’
Following a three-hour standoff in which she “tried to stab two 10-year-old boys to death,” a woman was arrested for attempted murder.
Police confirmed that one woman was arrested following a call to a property in Friskney, Lincolnshire, following reports of a safety concern.
Following the incident, officers on the scene arrested a 39-year-old woman on suspicion of attempted murder, and the suspect remains in police custody.
Two boys, both aged ten, were said to have suffered stab wounds as a result of the incident and were both taken to the hospital following police intervention at the scene.
Officers spoke with the occupant of the Friskney property before negotiating with the woman inside.
Negotiations, which began yesterday at 4:30 p.m. at the home, are said to have lasted several hours, with specialist firearms officers present.
Officers forced their way into the property shortly after 1 a.m. on November 30 after several hours of negotiating.
Roads to and from the property, which housed two children with stab wounds but no life-threatening injuries, were closed during the police presence.
Neither is believed to have suffered life-threatening injuries as a result of the stab wounds they both received, and the pair is now being treated in a hospital following a police breach of the property.
The 39-year-old woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was arrested at the property earlier this morning and will remain in police custody.
An initial call to police at 1:49 p.m. on November 29 prompted hours of negotiating and, eventually, a forced entry into a property that had been reported as unsafe.
