    A FOUR-year-old boy has told police how a man "kept stabbing and punching mummy" in a frenzied knife attack that left her with more than 20 knife wounds.
    Detectives in Hull have been horrified by the ferocity of the attack, which they are treating as attempted murder, in the kitchen of a house in Hull.
    The Yorkshire Post understands the victim is 22-year-old mother-of-two Shannon Taylor, who was found in her kitchen in Hereford Street, west Hull, on Thursday afternoon. Her son was with her, and her three-month-old daughter was asleep upstairs.
    The attacker may have been somebody she knew, but police think it possible she disturbed an intruder, possibly one under the influence of drugs because of the ferocity of the attack.
    Several expensive items are missing, including a DVD player, TV, jewellery and clothing. It is not yet known if the knife repeatedly slashed across her throat and head and stabbed into her back was taken from the kitchen.
    It is understood her son saw the whole incident and has given police a detailed account.
    Ms Taylor's boyfriend was at work and came home to find his partner in intensive care.
    Det Supt Ray Higgins of Humberside Police said: "This was a savage and ferocious attack, clearly carried out by somebody in a frenzied state. It could so very easily have been murder and she is still very poorly, although we understand she is out of danger."
