Four people arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following a stabbing in Ipswich have been released on bail.

Officers were called at about 10.40pm on Saturday, August 19, to reports that a 16-year-old boy had been stabbed in Landseer Road.

The suspects were believed to have left the scene of the attack on foot, heading in the direction of Nacton Road.

The victim was taken to hospital having sustained multiple stab wounds to his body and legs. His condition is now described as stable.

Following initial police enquiries, five people from Ipswich were arrested in connection with the incident and taken to the police investigation centre, in Martlesham, for questioning.

A 62-year-old man, 22-year-old man, 17-year-old boy and 16-year-old boy were all arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. A 46-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

The four males arrested on suspicion of attempted murder have all been released on bail until Wednesday, September 13, pending further enquires. The woman arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender has been released under investigation.

Detectives are continuing to appeal to trace three teenage boys, described as white and aged between 14 and 16, who were seen walking towards town along Landseer Road from Nacton Road at the time of the incident. They may have vital information to assist the investigation.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has any information, is asked to contact South CID at Landmark House on 101, quoting crime reference number 37/55760/17.
