Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with an assault in Ipswich.

The victim, 18, was attacked at approximately 6.10pm on Thursday, October 28, near the zebra crossing between Berners Street and Henley Road. 

A Suffolk police spokesman said the victim was involved in a verbal altercation with three other males, who then assaulted him. 

He sustained a blow to the head and attended a hospital for a check up.

Police arrested two teenagers, aged 18 and 17, on suspicion of assault on October 31.

They were taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning and released on bail until November 27, pending further enquiries.

Officers are appealing for any witnesses, but would particularly like to locate a man who was walking a dog along Anglesea Road.
