Police forensic experts are examining the scene of an attack on a woman in Cosham.
Police are hunting a man who they say assaulted a woman at King George V playing fields today. There are unconfirmed reports that she was stabbed.
Officers say it is too early to know whether or not the assault is connected to two other stabbing attacks on women in the north of the city.
