She has been remanded for a further court appearance this week.
A neighbour, who did not wish to be named said: “I can’t believe it.
“I don’t really know her as she is a very private person, you very rarely see her.”
Another added: “It’s scary to think this happened on our street. You never think it will happen on your doorstep.”
Builders, working a few houses away from the scene of the incident said: “We didn’t know anything about it until we saw the police back into the drive. It came as a shock.”
Humberside Police confirmed this week that the victim is receiving hospital treatment and is considered to be recovering.
