Staff at a pizza delivery business on Bramford Road cared for a man while waiting for the emergency services yesterday after he was stabbed in the stomach.

Police were called to the Domino’s Pizza branch shortly after 4pm after the victim told staff he had been stabbed.

The ambulance service attended and the man, who is believed to have sustained a wound to the abdomen, was taken to Ipswich Hospital. He is believed to be in a stable condition.

A spokeswoman for Domino’s said: “A member of the public came into the branch and said he had been stabbed in the stomach.

“The branch manager called the ambulance and the police immediately.

“They helped take care of the man while they waited for the ambulance to arrive.

“We are pleased to be able to help the victim in some small way by calling the ambulance and wish him a full recovery. We will help the police with their inquiries what ever way we can.”
