The knife was recovered after Sunday’s attack, but police have not apprehended the attacker.

“This was clearly a very distressing incident for the woman involved and officers have spent time with her, whilst she was being treated for her injury, to get an account of what happened,” Det Supt Alex Bingley, of the Central West Command Unit told the BBC. “We know that this assault was witnessed by a number of people, many of whom captured it on their phones. I would ask them, if they have not already done so, to contact police.”

“We remain in the early stages of our investigation and are working hard to trace the person responsible,” Bingley continued. “I would ask people not to speculate on the motive for the attack until we have established the full facts.”

The woman’s injuries are not life threatening.
