Police investigating the attempted murder of a woman in Leeds are appealing for the public’s help to trace clothing linked the incident.

At 11.30pm on Saturday June 8, officers were called to an address in Naburn Place, Leeds, where a 26-year-old woman was found seriously injured with multiple stab wounds.

At 11.49pm police were called to Farnham Croft where the suspect was arrested.

Detective Chief Inspector Jon Morgan, of West Yorkshire Police Protective Services (Crime), said: “Despite comprehensive searches involving specialist officers around both addresses and the area in between we have not yet recovered some items of clothing which we believe were discarded somewhere in the vicinity.

“We are wanting to hear from anyone who may have seen these items in that area. They are a black rucksack, a red tartan checked shirt, tan coloured trainers and a pair of blue jeans. Given the nature of the incident, it’s possible these items could be bloodstained.

“I would ask that anyone who has seen any clothing that matches this description in the area contact us immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Protective Services (Crime) officers via 101.

Neil Wilson, aged 36, of Ashfield Terrace, Swarcliffe, has appeared in court this week charged with attempted murder in relation to the incident.
