Police are hunting for a knifeman after a young jogger was repeatedly stabbed by a stranger as she went on her first run.

Maddi Forster posted photos showing a series of puncture wounds in her leg after the random attack by a man dressed in black and wearing a face covering.

The 21-year-old said she had decided to take up running this year – but it ended with her having to fight off an assailant armed with a knife.

She was stabbed four times in her leg and only managed to escape after she ”punched and kicked myself out of his arms”.

Maddi shared her story on Facebook as a warning to others and police are hunting the mystery knifeman.

Posting online, Maddie said the attack happened while running along a cycle path in the Brook Road area of Kingswood, Bristol.

Maddi was stabbed four times sometime between 5pm and 6pm on December 7.

She suffered several laceration-type injuries to her leg and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Maddi wrote on Facebook: ”WARNING TO ALL JOGGERS/ GIRLS ON THEIR OWN.

”Went for a run tonight along the cycle path in Warmley around the back of Kings Oak Academy when I was grabbed and attacked by an unknown male dressed in all black wearing a face covering and gloves.

“I was stabbed 4 times in the leg. Not sure what his intentions were as I wasn’t mugged and luckily managed to punch and kick myself out of his arms.
