A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a woman was stabbed 'numerous times' in Manchester.

The woman, 30, is fighting for her life following the incident at the junction of Shadowmoss Road and Cornishway in Wythenshawe at about 1.05am on Sunday (30 October).

She was taken to hospital with multiple stab wounds and injuries to her head and neck and remains in a critical condition.

Officers attended and a 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. He remains in police custody for questioning.

According to the Mirror, police forensics teams have been combing the area. A neighbour near the house being searched today told the Mirror he could hear shouting and screaming during the incident.

He said that he had thought it was neighbours arguing. Police have launched an investigation and are appealing for witnesses.

Detective Inspector Tony Lea of Greater Manchester Police's City of Manchester Team, said: "Sadly, a woman is in a critical condition in hospital after being attacked in the early hours of the morning.

"We have a man in custody in connection with the stabbing but we still need witnesses to come forward and help us with the investigation.

"I'm urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or has any information, to get in contact with us as soon as possible."
