The police have appealed for anyone with any information to come forward.

One woman and three men are reported to have suffered from injuries following a stabbing incident in County Down over the weekend.

According to RTE, the incident took place in the early hours of Sunday morning (March 11), in a house in the Queens Park area of Saintfield.

The woman was taken to hospital, and is said to be in a stable condition, while the three men are reported to have suffered less serious injuries.

They were attacked by a man who police say fled the scene in a blue Volvo C70 car, with the registration K9 NES.

Detectives have since arrested a 46-year-old man, who remains in custody.

The PSNI ask for anyone with information to contact them: those within Northern Ireland can simply dial 101, while those outside of Northern Ireland can contact with PSNI on 004428-9065-0222.
