A man who was stabbed in the neck while walking his dog in Oadby has been released from hospital. The apparently unprovoked attacked happened in parkland off Bluebell Close in the town shortly before 8.45am on Saturday. The 62-year-old victim was discharged from hospital yesterday. A 30-year-old who was arrested in connection with the incident has since been released on police bail pending further inquiries. Detective Constable Gary Dickinson, who is investigating incident, said: "We would still encourage anyone who can assist with our investigation and hasn't yet spoken to the police to come forward. "Incidents of this nature are extremely rare and we would like to reassure the local community that we still believe that this incident was isolated." The scene, which was cordoned off by police on Saturday, was opened to the public again the following day. Several patches of ground, believed to be areas where the victim lost blood, were covered with a green powder, earlier this week. Police said the wounded man was found by a member of the public who ran to nearest house to get and came across a nurse. The nurse stemmed the flow of blood from the wound until paramedics arrived. Detectives later said the nurse's swift action could well have saved the man's life. Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to contact DC 813 Gary Dickinson on 101. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers, which is free and anonymous, on 0800 555 111.
