A £20,000 reward has been offered for information that helps catch an intruder who stabbed a female police officer as she responded to a break-in.

The 30-year-old officer was investigating the incident at a property on Arthur Street, Stevenston, North Ayrshire, on Wednesday, October 18.

The attacker fled the scene and police have yet to find them. The officer, who had been with two colleagues at the time, was taken to hospital.

Nobody else was injured and the officer has since been discharged.

Crimestoppers has offered a reward of up to £20,000 for anonymous information the charity exclusively receives that leads to the conviction of those responsible for this violent attack.

“Our charity – which is independent of the police – guarantees complete anonymity,” Crimestoppers said.

“We never ask for or store any personal details such as names, addresses or contact details of the people who contact us. All we want to know is what you know.”

Members of the public can call Crimestoppers’ 24/7 Contact Centre staff on 0800 555 111.

Last month, on October 24, detectives revisited the scene and spoke with more than 30 people as they carried out enquiries.

Detectives have set up an online portal to encourage members of the public to submit information. This can be accessed at https://mipp.police.uk/operation/SCOT23S35-PO1
