A man was arrested on suspicion of two counts of attempted murder a short while later.
A councillor for the ward said the incident was not typical of the area and that he hoped the victims make a full recovery.
Adam Rae, Labour councillor for Alexandra ward, said: "We have incidents here like anywhere else, but I would say it's a safe area.
"This alleged incident is shocking. You hear about these sort of things in other parts of the country, but not in Ipswich."
