A MAN has been taken to hospital after he was stabbed in Ipswich town centre.

Police and paramedics were called to the public toilets in the Buttermarket shopping centre around 3.30pm.

A police spokesman said the man, in his teens or early 20s, had been stabbed in the upper body in nearby Butter Market Street.

He said: “The man was located inside the Buttermarket shopping centre with a stab wound to his left hand side. He has since been taken to Ipswich Hospital where he remains in a stable condition. We have closed off the toilet where the man was found.”

He said the man was conscious and breathing in hospital and that a friend he had been found with had not been injured.

A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service said the man had suffered potentially serious but not life threatening injuries.

  • I wonder what you mean by the word 'cowardless', I can't find it in any dictionary. I take it you don't live in Ipswich otherwise that would make you a 'sewar' rat like the rest of us.
