Stabbing on Nacton Road, Ipswich

Stabbing on Nacton Road, Ipswich

DETECTIVES are continuing their investigations after a man was stabbed in an alleyway in Ipswich.

The scene, in an alleyway between Lloyds bank and Nacton Fried Food in Nacton Road, was cordoned off after reports that a man had sustained knife wounds were made Suffolk police.

Officers were called just before 4.40pm and sent six units and CID to the scene.

People living nearby have spoken of their shock at last night’s events.

One neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “I have lived here for seven years so I’m quite shocked to hear what’s happened to be honest.

“We heard the police but thought it might have been a little fight but nothing like a stabbing.” A nearby shop worker added: “The first we heard of anything happening was police sirens and a load of officers arriving.”

Paramedics from East of England Ambulance Service were called at 5.04pm and arrived on scene within four minutes.

The man, who age is unknown, was taken to Ipswich Hospital by ambulance with a stab wound to his abdomen for further treatment. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information in relation to the stabbing.

Call Ipswich CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 with information.

Sick of negativity of one sad individual.

  • Please accept my contribution to his train fare!! You might not get a stabbing in Holbrook, opinion man, but that village has its own share of problems too...I hate to disappoint you but there's plenty of drug use amongst kids there, and in the other villages on the peninsula! As I've said to you before, I agree there are certain areas of Ipswich that could do with improvement, but as others have said to you too it's no different to other towns and cities! I think it's you who needs to wake up and smell the coffee if you think comparing Ipswich to a village or market town is anything less than ludicrous.

  • Just four stories below this one there is report of a stabbing in Colchester but "the opinion man" - whose opinion doesn't count for much in the vast scheme of things - chooses not to comment on that one. No opinion on that one?

  • Opinion Man. Here is a thought, I don't much like some other towns in the UK so do you know what? I don't live in them or read their local paper. Do you see how it works?

  • I`ve lived here all my life and surely even the most blinkered leftie can see the town has become contaminated with the criminal classes from home and abroad. You can fool some of the people some of the time etc.

  • I would suggest that "the opinion man" goes to the trip adviser page - types in Ipswich - then if he still hates Ipswich I will gladly give him his train fare to leave our town.

  • Do any enterprising and investigative journalists at the Star have any figures to share with its readers about whether Ipswich is morelessaverage for this kind of crime compared to similar sized towns in England? I personally reserve judgement until any well sourced facts are presented.

  • @ Opinion Man.. How on earth can you compare the Ipswich crime rate to that of Lavenham & Holbrook,both of which are very small & Rural villages? I think it's about time you changed the record because your's has got a very big scratch on it and it keeps jumping to the same point over & over!

  • Wake up and smell the coffee. You would not have this crime happening in places like Lavenham or Holbrook. Just accept Ipswich is a "cesspit" and deal with it. Once you do we can make Ipswich a better place to live rather than pretending its OK and "just like" any other town

  • Unfortunately opinion man this is a sad fact of life in any large built up area - Ipswich is no worse than any other town of a similar size (as you have been told in these comment boxes many many times).
