On Sunday 15th June 2014 between 3.00pm and 4.00pm a man and a girl were seen engaged in an argument in woodland near the disused railway footpath that leads onto Bowden Lane, close to The Rye Park, High Wycombe.
It is alleged that the man then assaulted the girl and that a member of the public challenged the man about his actions. The argument continued onto The Rye, where the man was stabbed with a knife. The victim is being treated in John Radcliffe Hospital, where his condition is described as stable.
The girl is described as being of mixed race, 5ft 6ins tall, of proportionate build, and in her mid teens. She was wearing all black clothing and carrying a bag.
A 15-year-old girl from Aylesbury has been arrested on suspicion of GBH with intent and released on police bail until 30 July 2014.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident. They are keen to speak to this member of the public who challenged the man because he might be able to help officer with their enquiries.
