Four revellers claim they were 'spiked' at nightspots across Suffolk over the weekend with three of the victims allegedly stabbed with a needle.

Two of the alleged attacks happened at Revolution bar and a third at Bar 21, both in Ipswich town centre, while a further incident was reported at the Flex nightclub in Bury St Edmunds.

Two of the incidents reported in Ipswich included the use of a needle, with the other a drink spiking. The Bury St Edmunds incident also involved a needle.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said: “Officers can confirm they received three reports of incidents over the weekend in Ipswich where members of the public believe they were pricked with a needle or drink spiked. 

“There were three incidents at two separate venues over the weekend – two at Revolution bar and one at Bar 21. Two of the reported incidents included use of a needle and the other reported incident was of a drink spiking. 

“Police are currently investigating these incidents and enquiries are ongoing. 

“If you think someone has been spiked, then you should let bar staff or a door supervisor know. We would encourage anyone who believes they have been a victim or witness to spiking, in any form, to contact police.
