A teenager from Northampton is set to appear in magistrates’ court this morning.

He has been charged with Section 18 GBH with intent after a stabbing in the early hours of Tuesday near the Kings Heath pitches.

A woman aged 31 who was also arrested in connection with the incident has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Officers were called after they received reports of a man stumbling outside an address close to the Mill Lane-Nene Way junction shortly before 4am on Tuesday, 20 June.

The 30-year-old victim had suffered multiple stab wounds to the chest, back and abdomen and was taken by paramedics to Northampton General Hospital. His condition remained serious last night.

EDITOR'S NOTE: We have altered the story to reflect the fact police initially said the person released was a male. In fact, they were a 31-year-old woman.
