  • Lincolnshire Police have confirmed that two people have been arrested after a nine-year-old girl was stabbed while playing in Lincolnshire Boston Town Centre


As reported yesterday (Thursday 28th July 2022), a nine-year-old girl was stabbed while playing near her home in Boston Town Centre, Lincolnshire. The nine-year-old girl sadly died. Today Lincolnshire Police who said they were treating the incident as murder have confirmed that two people have been arrested.

Chief Superintendent Kate Anderson, of Lincolnshire Police said: “We believe this to be an isolated incident. We are pursuing extensive lines of enquiry and have committed a number of resources to this investigation.”

“You will see more officers patrolling the area, and we have a high number of specialist detectives who have been brought in to assist the investigation.”

“We are not yet in a position to name the victim. Her parents are being supported by specially trained officers at this very difficult time, and I can only imagine the grief and pain that they are going through. Their welfare and the welfare of those who she knew is a priority for us.”

Chief Supt Anderson added: “This incident has shocked our community in Boston, and I would like to reassure the community that we’re doing absolutely everything we can to progress the investigation and to support the family.”

According to Lincolnshire Police, the nine-year-old girl died from a suspected stab wound at around 6.20pm on Thursday. Police immediately launched a hunt for her killer or killers.

It has been reported that police pursued a man who was seen running away from the scene, while officers also examined CCTV.

One local man said: “I cannot believe what has happened, she was such a wonderful little girl.”

A woman who lived on the same street as the little girl said she was shocked. She said that she could still not take it in what had happened.

A bouquet of red roses has been laid at the scene which had a condolence card. It read: “So sorry this cruel world has taken your life, beautiful girl. May you be in the arms of the angels.”

The Conservative MP for Boston and Skegness, Matt Warman, said he had been in contact with the policing minister to ensure national assistance is available to the murder investigation.

He said: “Profoundly shocking news in Boston this evening. I have spoken to senior officers locally and am hugely grateful for all the emergency services’ work.


“I have also been in contact with policing minister Tom Pursglove to ensure that any national help that might be useful is made available as quickly as possible.”
