Police are treating a double stabbing in Ipswich as a ‘targeted attack’, as investigations continue.

Officers arrested two 16-year-old boys following Monday’s incident at an address in Waterford Road, where an 18-year-old man was stabbed in the leg and a 64-year-old man was stabbed in the torso following an altercation outside.

Police were called just after 12.15pm to reports that three males carrying knives had been at the address.

A 16-year-old boy, from Ipswich, arrested on suspicion of assault causing grievous bodily harm, has been released under investigation. Another 16-year-old boy, also from Ipswich, is still being questioned under suspicion of the same crime.

Both victims were taken to hospital for treatment, but have now been discharged.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact South CID on 101 quoting reference 69047/17.
