A man in his 20s was treated for 'puncture wounds' following an assault in Ipswich on Saturday night.

Police confirmed that a man had been injured during a fight in Ellenbrook Green last night, which led to officers cordoning off the area.

They said the victim had suffered a facial injury and two minor puncture wounds, and had travelled to hospital in a taxi before officers arrived at the scene.

Officers were called at 7pm by a member of the public reporting they had just witnessed a fight between a group of males.

In a statement released late on Sunday morning, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman added: "All parties had dispersed prior to police arrival and officers subsequently identified that a man who had been injured during the incident was travelling to hospital in a taxi."
