The man, who was in the property at the time, was also alleged to have been throwing furniture and electrical items out of the building when officers were called at 10.50pm yesterday (Monday).

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said the suspect was admitted to hospital with minor injuries before being taken into custody.
