A man was wrestled to the ground and stabbed in the leg after an altercation in an alleyway.

The attack happened in the cut through from Bramley Hill to Haslemere Drive, Ipswich around 10pm on Saturday, May 9.

Two men were walking a dog, when one of them accidently pushed into another man they were passing, police said.

The man became verbally aggressive so they decided to leave the area for a short while.

About ten minutes later the two men returned, along with a woman, and when they reached the same location the male offender approached the group, becoming verbally aggressive again.

The male offender wrestled one of the men, a 26-year-old, to the ground and stabbed him in the right leg and scratched along his abdomen with a small knife.

The offender ran off toward Bramley Hill.
