Man held after headteacher neighbour stabbed in neck with screwdriver

The victim, 39, was assaulted as she got out of her car after she returned from work in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, just after 5pm.

Police were called to the scene in Shaw Road, Thornham, following reports the married woman, who has not been named, had been stabbed three times.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman confirmed she was attacked in the face and neck with a screwdriver outside her home.

But police denied residents' claims that the incident resulted from a "neighbour feud" and also dismissed suggestions of tensions between the pair recently.
