A 15-year-old girl has been arrested after an argument in woodland led to a man being stabbed.
The girl, from Aylesbury, was arrested on suspicion of GBH with intent and released on police bail until July 30.
A man and a girl were seen engaged in an argument in woodland in High Wycombe near the disused railway footpath that leads onto Bowden Lane, close to The Rye Park, between 3pm and 4pm on Sunday June 15.
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 into The Rye, where the man was stabbed with a knife.
The man is being treated at the John Radcliffe Hospital, where his condition is described as stable.
The girl is of mixed race, 5ft 6ins tall, of proportionate build, and in her mid teens.
She was wearing all black clothing and carrying a bag.
Police are keen to speak to the member of the public that challenged the man before the stabbing.
Investigating officer Det Con Gavin Toney said: “I want to specifically appeal to anyone who saw the man and the girl arguing in woodland near the disused railway footpath that leads onto Bowden Lane.
