A woman's been stabbed multiple times in the leg as she walked along a street in Loughborough.

The victim, in her 20s, was in the Burleigh Road area, at around 2.25am when she saw a man on a bicycle.

The man was reported to have then ran up to her and spoke to her. When she moved away, the suspect grabbed her forearm and pulled her to the floor. 

She tried to defend herself which led to the suspect stabbing her three times to her upper thigh before making off.
