A female motorist has been stabbed by a passing cyclist in Spalding.
Lincolnshire Police haven’t said what time the incident occurred occurred today (Saturday), but have said the woman was waiting in traffic at the Winsover Road level crossing when the incident happened.
Police say they’re looking for a group of teenagers after one of those cycling past stabbed the lady in the arm with an instrument officers believe could be ‘like a screwdriver’.
A statement from the police says: “A woman received a stab injury while in traffic on Winsover Road in Spalding. The victim was in a white Mazda near the level crossing at the junction with Thomas Street and had her arm out of the window.
“There was one car in front of her vehicle and when the barrier began to lift a group of four teenage men cycled past with one stabbing her in the arm. It is suspected this was caused by something similar to a screwdriver due to the puncture nature of the wound.
“The group are described as white, dressed in dark clothing and wearing baseball caps. They left the scene by heading down Thomas Street and the victim has attended hospital.
